The thing about Cat, if she can make any improvement to her putting it means shaving off ALOT of strokes in her game. Granted if Paige can control ob, that's a huge gain as well. Paige has the distance air shot, Cat has the distance roller. I give the nod in the approach game to Cat. Putting is what separates them the most currently.

Sarah, I agree she has to play literally at the top of her game to give Cat/Paige a serious run for the win. Her putting style has so many variables that can go wrong, too lofty, high arcing, not enough power, nose angle, etc, etc. To my eyes, her putting success seems more based on luck than skill. The more I study her forehand style the more my back/neck hurts.

I believe Catrina's "putting breakthrough" is easily within her grasp, and it would not be at war with her nature like the changes might be for the others. She seems to have the courage to risk two steps back to go fives steps forward which is one of the hallmarks of a champion.

You could say the same thing about half the players out there in both MPO and FPO and their jump/step putts, including PP

Still doesn't answer the question, when is SOMEONE going to call her (or them)?

No idea but I wish they would before the S&D people finally get there way and change the rules...

I suspect it's more likely to go the other way to where step-putt-jumps are allowed all the way from tee to pin and the 10m circle is no more.

Which still wouldn't solve the legality issues with Hokom's jump putt. I don't think there's a viable re-write of the rules that can solve that. It's 100% an enforcement problem.

I agree, although it's possible the RC might also consider changing the rule to where you can release your throw sometime before your foot steps in front of the lie even if it occurs after your supporting point has left the surface.

I hate to thread drift, but yes the jump putt rule should be re-written so that it is more along the lines of a 3 pointer in Basket Ball. I don't care when you release your disc as long as your plant foot starts out within the the appropriate lie. But, I would like to keep the 10m circle.

This. Those two Fins are still teenagers. They're going to be the crush girls if they decide to skip college/family and move here and pursue discgolf. Sky is the limit for them, just depends on how bad they want it, if at all.
