Default Jump when you putt?

I do outside of about 50ft. Inside of that circle i try to get a nice beam at it,but outside I jump forward 1 hop with a slight anhyzer so the putter kinda stalls at the end. what i wanna know is i get conflicted with weather or not to jump-putt and i end up missin a bird and screwin up an otherwise well played hole. has anyone found it better to jump or stay planted?

Before you start your round, already have in mind where your standing range ends and where your jumping starts. For me, I know anything outside 40' is going to be a jump putt so I already know for those putts to put a little extra on it. I don't go into a round thinking I might jump on some outside 40', but not on others. PUTT < 40' = STANDING / PUTT > 40' = JUMPING. Just figure out what your range is and be consistent with it. Have a game plan and stick to it. Good luck!

I never got the hang of jump-putting, and I'm still tweaking my form, but I use a rocking motion. Start with all my weight on my back foot (left since I putt RHBH), and the disc is tucked into my waist. As I extend my arm out straight in front, I shift my weight forward, snapping my wrist at the end. This has given me a straighter, and more powerful throw. I have also found that it's a lot more acurate than anything else I've tried.

For me it is about 45 feet - 60 feet, as long as I have a good line to the basket with a lot of height to work with. I also find it helpful to do this with a tailwind at my back - the extra height helps.
