            The player does not even have to contact the ground in front of their disc for the throw to be called illegal all that is needed is a second. If a player feels the throw is illegal and another player agrees by seconding the call then the throw is illegal. My suggestion, imake it look legal so there is no question by the group.

            Much like only the player can call something un-playable. Only the group or an official can call a throw illegal.

              I prefer the prone thrust but it must be repeated so often that the 30 minute rule would surely be called by some lame dude.

                  It looks good on DVD. I want to go see him at the CSI because I have never spectated a pro tourney. If its outside 30 feet who really cares? Something I would like to try in practice.

                          the jump putt is all about the inertia that is built during the early stages of a "jumping" motion and how it applies to said putt. Nothing to do with a literal jump.
                          the same applies to the walk putt, just as long as no other points of contact are established beyond your placement, and your origin of contact (ie. foot behind marker) still is your "origin". all of these must be true through the release of the disc.
                          did I miss anything?

                              I did this style of putt and still do but only for outside of about 50 feet. A lot of people don't clearly know the rules on this and beleive it is a fault when it isn't. I stopped doing this putt from within 50 because i would get called on it so much. nobody can watch your hand and foot at the same time. I suggest you get it on video and see if it is. If it is that change it up a little bit, if it isn't than you have nothing to worry about.
                              Fear of any kind is the number one enemy of all golfers regardless of ball-striking and shot-making capabilities.

                                That's a good suggestion. I was thinking about that the other day after asking a few of my buddies if they ever notice me losing my point of contact while jump-putting. I've golfed with both of these guys on hundreds of occasions, and each said they felt my putt was legal. I have never been called on a foot-fault after jump-putting, but have been told that it was 'close' a few times(out of thousands of attempts). It is important to me to play within the rules, so I agree that it'd be a good idea to see it on video to be sure.
                                Don't just walk past that candy wrapper on the fairway-- I know you saw it!
