Holing Ball While Another Ball is in Hole

Q. Is it a breach of a Rule for a ball to be holed while another ball is at rest in the hole?

A. No.

Both balls are holed (see Definition of "Holed") and there are no penalties incurred by either player.

It is a breach of Etiquette for the first player to leave his ball in the hole if the second player has asked him to remove it.
