I was under the impression that you had some sort of triangle from the middle of your lie, back however many inches and to either side however many inches. Im not clear on if thats true, and if it is, what amount of space is allowed ( i believe its like a foot or 11 inches is what someone told me).
In league the other day I was straddle putting, here is a crude diagram of where my feet were placed.
is this legal?
My right foot is about 4-6 inches behind the mini, left is staggered back a bit more, i was warned for a foot fault, can i do this or no?
to clarify the debate was whether one foot had to be directly behind the mini or if i had the triangle.

A. When the disc is released, a player must:
(1) Have at least one supporting point that is in contact with the playing surface on the line of play and within 30 centimeters directly behind the marker disc.

IE a strattle putt where you are within the allowed distance behind your marker your other points of contact (knees hands foot) all must be behind the point of contact begind your lie, this would be illegal:
