Default Jump Putt in the circle

1. Is it legal to jump putt from behind your lie (mini or disc) as long as you land behind your marker? Say one starts within the requisite allowable distance behind their lie, jumps and lands still within the prescribed allowable distance behind their lie?

Thanks!

Not inside the 30 foot circle.

Yes. You can putt-jump staying behind your lie inside the circle. Not jump-putt. Demonstrate Balance video.

For any throw (not just within the circle), you must have a supporting point in contact with the lie, which is a 30cm line behind your marker on the playing surface.

Any shot where you are throwing while in mid air is illegal.

Since others have covered the legality, I want address the practicality. Will a jump of roughly 10 inches really make a difference when you're that close to the target? Not to mention, would you be able to stop the momentum of the jump such that you don't carry past the marker toward the target anyway? Seems like, legal or not, it wouldn't be of much benefit.

I think where the practicality might come in is for those who may not have the power to reach the basket with control with a stand and deliver putt such as some women and youth. They may prefer jumping pretty much in place to slinging their putt.

(As a spin putter) I've never really understood the need for a jump putt (from practically any distance). But it seems to me, as long as you release your disc with a supporting point in the lie, any jumping around you want to do afterward (that doesn't land forward of the lie before establishing balance) is up to you. If you feel that leaping three feet into the air and spinning around 540 degrees, falling down on the landing (behind your lie) helps you with your putting accuracy, I'd encourage it (and certainly want to see it once!)

OP: I know what you're saying, though...maybe that little six inch hop makes you comfortable. Go for it. Played with a good putter who takes a full step into the lie as he releases. Looks 'different' (and more graceful than jump putting), but it worked for him.

I push putt from inside the circle, but outside of the circle I spin putt, and I don't need to jump. If you really think jumping gives you that much of an advantage then I think y ou should rethink your putting method. I seem to be making most of my 20-30 footers without feeling the need to jump.

I just watched the "demonstrating balance When Putting" video, and at 2:55, it appears the player is "okay" while releasing in the air in the example given. Hard to tell though, even after many replays, whether his feet were off the ground at the time of release....

Player (me) was definitely on the ground before release. All of those video clips were reviewed frame by frame for accuracy.
