Default The Disc Golf Guy - Vlog #364 - Step Putt Analysis for Ulibarri and Feldberg

Quote:
FOOT FAULT - or is it?

One of disc golf's most discussed rules is broken down here as I slow down the video of both Paul Ulibarri and Dave Feldberg during a few of their successful step putts from the 2016 Maricopa Meadows Open. What do YOU think about these putts? Legal or illegal? Let me know in the comments section what you think.

I agree with terry. even after breaking a few of them down the disc always comes out riiiiiiiiight b4 the foot hits. I slowed this one down to .25 and did some play/pause action trying to catch it but really way too close to ever call let alone be illegal.

I thought Uli's 2nd putt was the most questionable. But the camera angle isn't the bast to catch his left foot hitting the ground.

Dave's all look good to me.

Frankly, Uli's putts I have the most question on are misses, usually to the right.

Agreed...reminds me of the more nitpicky charging fouls in college basketball. Within the rules, sure, but it hurts my aesthetic sense.

Bring on the 15 meter circle, so no one will care about step puts anymore.

The clips Terry showed look legal to me. Uli's 2nd is hard to tell because of a bad camera angle, so I can't call it.

That one was close.

This one is definitely a fault:

Won't people still be step-putting at 15.5 meters out? Pretty sure I will be. And it's going to keep me quite a bit more accurate than if I were throwing from a standstill, so if anybody is going to challenge my stance, they'd have more reason to if I'm making more of these putts.

I don't see how changing the circle radius could resolve this dispute.

It looks like Dave's back foot comes off the ground before he releases on the second one.
