This just came to me last night and I thought I'd throw it out there to see what the actual application of the rule should be...say you're playing a hole that's a long dogleg. The rule states that you cannot move closer to the hole than your marker; however, if the stance has you throwing to reach the turn of the dogleg, theoretically couldn't you go "past" your marker and yet still not be closer to the basket, therefore making it a legal throw?
