Two questions, one being easy and another being fairly complicated.
First one I believe I know the answer but just want verification since this hasn't happened before with me. My ball today landed in a man made draining ditch on top of a bunch of rocks. What is the draining ditch ruled as? Despite not being marked it is considered a water hazard, correct me if I am wrong.
Secondly and what I believe is more complicated is as follows:
My opponent's (I'm using that term loosly) drop location for his ball was in the same location as where my ball laid. I verbally alerted him that I was ready to play my shot and addressed my ball. During my swing he threw a golf ball in my direction landing a few feet from mine which resulted in me shanking my shot. Other then him illegally dropping his golf ball (this is how he normally drops and that's another issue), what is the ruling. His action clearly distracted me during my swing, is he penalized? What is my next action?
