The other foot may be no closer to the hole than the foot on this lie. A run-up and normal follow-through, after release, is allowed more than 10 meters from the hole.

A throw that lands out-of-bounds must be played from the point where the disc went out-of-bounds. Water, ro, pavilions and walkways are normal disc golf out-of-bounds hazards. Never throw until the players ahead of you are out of range, and until the fairway is completely clear of spectators and park guests. Enjoy the game of Disc Golf!
