The problem isn't the exiting rule, it's the players. You change the rule and you'll have people doing a run up for a fairway shot - if people don't call it, you're in the same boat you are now.

The difference is that even if you want to call a foot fault, it happens so fast and there's no proof that it occurred. If you stand & deliver, you can see the foot placement. That's why you'll see more compliance as it is right now when people are making short upshots or putting with a stand & deliver stance. Other players are usually closer and the thrower knows they can see their feet, plus you can tell the thrower to look down where their feet are after the release and they can see the foot fault. Note that touching the mini with your foot during release is also a foot fault and that's easier to see with S&D.
No it's not. Players are still able to use the exact same stroke on the fairway as they are off the tee. It's just that the tee offers a nicer place to do it. It's a bad analogy.Chuck Kennedy wrote:If the analogy is that something is different between what a player does from the tee versus what they do from the fairway, then it's spot on.Bad analogy chuck.

Fritz - maybe we need to divide the PDGA rule book into rules you have to abide by and rules we'd really like you to, but it's okay if you don't abide by?
For the rec players, I don't have a problem. They play whenever with whatever disc, maybe they keep score, maybe they don't. But if you're going to keep score, then you should abide by all the rules. I can see somebody not knowing every rule - there are some obtuse situations we find ourselves in, but the ones you're gonna run across almost every hole should be pretty clear and easily followed.
I sort of agree about the "laid back" - but I think "too nice" to call people on rules they should know might be closer.

The PDGA rulebook consults Chuck Kennedy!
You probably shouldn't have posted that, Fritz.
