When putts collide

Q:  Jim and Mark are both on the green on No.  3. It is Jim’s turn to hit, and he strokes a long, curving putt toward the hole. Mark is next to putt, and he does so but before Jim’s ball comes to rest, both balls collide. What do they do?
A:  If a player’s ball in motion after a stroke on the putting green is deflected or stopped by another ball in motion after a stroke, the player’s stroke is canceled.  
The balls must be replaced and replayed, without penalty.
Tip of the day:  Play fast, but not that fast.
