Change rules for putting that a jump putt is not allowed PEROOID. If people on card are not going to call obvious foot faults in the Pro Tour then why would we expect an Amateur to do so or be able to tell if a jump putt was a foot fault?

I can see it happen in regular speed on these lead cards where the Pro is foot faulting the first time, there was one just at the last Pro Tour event by one of the players in round 2 who foot faulted bad.

Yeah but then I can hear it now; "Oh that wasn't a putt that was a throw."

All players in sanctioned tournaments B-tier and above are required to carry a copy of the PDGA's Official Rules of Disc Golf and Competition Manual. Failure to do so will result in a two-stroke penalty that can be assessed only once during the course of the tournament.

If a player chooses to carry a physical paper copy of the rules and competition manual booklet, they will be given a one-stroke BONUS (subtract one-stroke) on there overall tournament score.

I would add a section about having actually READ the rules. Maybe require a rules official test to join the PDGA.

I don't care if you step, jump, fly, dive, crawl, whatever...as long as both of your feet (or just 1 if you only have 1 foot) and regardless if in the air or on the ground, is behind your mini at the time of releasing your disc, I'm good.

There is a rules test you can take; but you have to be PDGA member in good standing. 25 questions. Then if you passed the test, you are given an option to pay $10 and become a Certified Rules Official for 3 years.

At certain levels of play, you are required to be a Certified Rules Official.

Can I place it on the front of the tee pad before I throw?

We also play "2 on 1". i.e. you get 2 drives on the first hole, if you choose, since we usually show up and play without any practice throws.

(added quotation marks to clarify that I meant the actual "rules official test.")

Right, but I'm saying it should be part of gaining a membership. If you don't know the rules then you can't join. It is the "Professional" Disc Golf Association, after all.



I know, but this a wishful thinking thread.
