Best Answer

If you are on the green and you hit another ball which is on the green, you receive a two shot penalty and must play your ball where it lies. The other ball must be replaced, you should have asked the other player to move the ball.

If however you are not on the green and hit another ball, there is no penalty, you again play yours as it lies and the other ball must be replaced.
