Right foot is the plant foot in a staggered stance, left foot comes off ground and goes forward past the lie before disc is released but right foot stays on ground behind marker until after disc is released and then goes forward past lie. Outside of 10m of course. Is this legal?


My understanding of the rules is that outside the circle this would be legal *as long as* that left foot doesn't touch down past the lie before the disc leaves the hand. Outside of 10m, you must have your furthest point of contact behind your marker, until the disc has left your hand at which point you are allowed to make contact with the ground past the marker.

You can actually have your left foot on the ground in front of your lie as long as you lift it up before releasing the shot from outside 10m. You can even do it within 10m as long as it's brought back behind the lie before it touches the ground after release.

interesting, didn't know that. as of late though I personally have been working on not doing any kind of jump or walking putt, just so theres no questioning it.
