This serves no purpose. If person A makes more long putts via jump putts than regular putts, then he should keep jump putting regardless of how well you're putting. I suspect that most jump-putters started out as normal putters and became jump-putters after trial and error. If everyone could putt like Ricky, they would. It's whatever works best for the individual. Nobody looks down on turbo putters for being awkward or inefficient.

I like the idea but the lack of consistency throughout those tournaments will be another talking point. Its def a cool idea.

How would stand and deliver result in more injury concerns?

Try to throw anything far without stepping in front of your plant foot. Then do that 20+ times a round, for a year.

Then post your results from the hospital

Well if I couldn't step past my lie, I wouldn't be throwing max power, obviously. No one would because it would be nigh impossible to stop yourself and not foot fault.

Distance is the price you pay for S&D (which is the reason it will never happen, not injuries).

You must not be competitive and the mechanics would still lead to injury risks. Im not sure how you could say it wouldnt.
Tell a pitcher that he cant have any feet past the rubber after release. Tell any athlete that he cant follow through and watch everyones body fall apart

I find it crazy that you are claiming it impossible to throw standstills without injuring yourself.

You can still follow through a bit, as long as you just stay balanced on your plant foot. Which, like I said, means you can't go full bore because it's harder to stay on your plant foot and not come down past the lie.

Maybe you just don't have any balance?

Maybe you dont know basic anatomy, reason, and logic. I would draw pictures if i could for you but why waste the time. Good luck with your great ideas and happy throwing!

Somebody better warn Mike C before he ends up in the hospital throwing those crazy, dangerous standstills!

He didn't even follow through! What a maniac!!

Two or three more of those and his ribs are bound to shatter, or his knees will explode.
