Slap a disc in this man's hand and you have my new driving form.

I still think its shame, if the new rule will make it 15 meters, because then you wouldnt be able to fall forward either if you are kneeling under some brush. And hitting one of these at 12 meters without being able to 'fall' forward at all, will make these putts almost impossible. I mean I have seen Climo do this style of putt many times within 15meters.

Other than that I dont have much against the new rule.

I give up. Changes like this frustrate me because no ones solving anything. The first problem being that I don't see what the actual problem is in the first place. The second being that unless you make the putting circle something like 40 meters people are still going to jump putt!

Here's what I would consider a better solution to the "problem" off the top of my head:

New rule: a player must be touching the ground at all times during any throw.

There, now you can't jump anymore and you can still follow through off your drives.

How about no follow thru on any shot except the tee? Stand and deliver rules! :)

I wouldn't like it but I can see how it would make the game more technical. That rule would piss me off on 700+ ft holes though, and there are several of those at my local courses.

I could probably work on and ~perfect a run up that still satisfies the no-follow-through standstill rules.

I would hurt myself on certain throws if I couldn't follow through.

I would definitely not play PDGA events if they were to be that ridiculous with the rules.

Why not keep the 10m and use a similar rule as a free throw? You cannot move your pivot foot or supporting point until the disc hits the basket.

Tall players would be able to deadfall toward the basket from a position 7-8 feet out knowing the disc would hit the chains before they hit the ground. That would meet your proposed criteria.

And then Markus Kallstrom's distance advantage would be like 300 feet from the fairway. I bet he would like that rule change :D

I agree, expanding the circle fails to adress the problem. If the legality of jump putting is in question, then attack the problem directly. Make it illegal all the time.

The rule says you can follow through. There's no way you can say jumping is part of your follow through. It takes intent to jump. You do not jump, unless you are planning on jumping.

Your definition of "follow through" is a bit too narrow. And besides, my body is built differently than yours so you have zero say in what constitutes my follow through.

Putting needs to be harder in disc golf anyway. At this point a stand still 50' putt is barely harder than a 10' putt ball golf.
