The course I play almost 95% of the time is so wooded and tight while being short that this situation hasn't really come up yet.

Are you allowed any kind of run-up on an approach shot as long as you throw from behind your marker disc?

Thanks in advance,

Z

Yup, you can run up on fairway drives.

PDGA RULES
Thanks...it's not always easy to tell from the videos...it seems like it would be hard to stay right behind the marker so I assume there's some margin of error allowed before anybody calls a foot fault...

I think anything behind a certain distance you can run up. I know you have to be 30 or 35 feet away to do a jump putt. I am not sure about a run up.
you can run up from any distance. you may not follow through in front of your lie within 10 meters.

it is pretty unusual to see a foot fault called on "fairway drives" although the rules are clear.
You do have to have your foot behind your marker and not noticeably off to one side, correct?

you can have one foot right behind your marker and spread your legs in any direction to get around a tree or bush or what not. i think you CAN move your whole body to one side, but theres some rule that states how far, im not sure what the distance is, maybe a foot?
PDGA Players rule & Handbook
800 Definitions:

Putt: Any throw from 10 meters or less as measured from the rear of the marker disc to the base of the hole is considered a putt.

Putt (falling) “ Falling Putt: A putt after which a player touches his or her marker disc, or any object beyond the lie, including the playing surface, before having demonstrated full control of balance.

These are the rules on run ups and touching your marker disc as provided by the PDGA, the 10 meter rule includes run ups.

as long as one supporting point (doesn't have to be a foot) is directly behind the mini/lie you can lean/twist/bend any way you wish providing none of your supporting points are closer to the pin than the lie.
Line of Play: The imaginary line on the playing surface extending from the center of the target through the center of the marker disc and beyond. This line has no thickness; therefore one support point must be directly behind the center of the marker.
And yes you have to be within a certian distance behind the marker, I can't find that distance for some reason. Your foot can not be touching the marker or move it, on release either, or it may be considered a foot fault.

i believe its 30 cm, meant to approximate the size of a disc.
You can run up as far as you want as long as you dont go past the marker.
yeah you guys got it.
