I will not call a foot fault on a jump putt unless it is obviously clear (with the naked eye instead of a frame by frame camera analysis) that the player jumped and then threw.
I'm not interested in whether or not a player jumped off the ground 0.1 seconds before letting go.
i agree. i would not have called him for a fault in any tournament round situation. i am going to play my game while he, or whomever else, plays theirs.
however, scott was saying about practice, if someone was to practice a faulty putt, and perfect it to the point where it was so close that people just brushed it off and said, "I'm not interested in whether or not a player jumped off the ground 0.1 seconds before letting go.", that player would then be getting an unfair advantage over the rest of the field. Micheal Jordan, one of the greatest basketball players of all time, was one of the dirtiest. dont be afraid to call people out on the rules, they are their for a reason. not even just talking about PDGA rounds either, casual rounds too. what friend is going to let another friend practice a faulty putt over and over in front of them without at least making fun of them or trying to insight a change. friends dont let friends foot fault.
