At the end of the round, we presented the problem to the proper authorities and it was ruled that there was a two-stroke penalty....What say you?

I agree with accessing your playing partner a two stroke penalty. I've been burned by that rule a couple of times even though I mark my ball.

I mark my ball with a red dot at the end of the ball logo. It helps a lot with ball identification. The problem arises when my playing competitor (who finds and plays a lot of lost balls) every now and then says 'Here's a ball with a red dot' and I take his word for it and instead of closely looking at the ball I go ahead and play it. Bingo ... two stroke penalty. And there goes another $3 bucks.
