A lot of people I play with don’t realize that this only applies to match play.

Situation #1-

The creek would be marked as a water hazard, therefore if he were to proceed under Rule 26 he would incur a one stroke penalty.  They would proceed under the prescribed relief options under 26-1 (Relief for ball in hazard) at the point where it last crossed the margin of the hazard. You can also play the ball as it lies without penalty as long as abiding by Rule 13-4.

Situation #2-

You can stop the ball and remove it from the creek at any time if you are proceeding under rule 26-1 (Relief for ball in hazard). If you want to play the ball as it lies you would have to proceed under 14-6.

14-6. Ball Moving in Water

When a ball is moving in water in a water hazard, the player may, without penalty, make a stroke, but he must not delay making his stroke in order to allow the wind or current to improve the position of the ball. A ball moving in water in a water hazard may be lifted if the player elects to invoke Rule 26.

rules question
situation #1 - ball rolls into culvert or creek, moving water carries ball toward green and stops.
What is proper procedure? free drop where it entered, or where it stopped. Man made culvert free drop, creek considered water hazard one stroke penalty

Situation #2 - same as above except ball does not show signs of stopping.
What is proper procedure? stop the ball, or let if continue and stop it before if reaches the green, or passes the limits of the fairway, or before it goes into a pond or other water hazard.

I have a golf buddy who pulls this kind of thing all the time.  Keep in mind we typically play one dollar, that’s 100 cents, per hole!
