On the green, ball is marked and picked up. Player taps down marker to reduce impeding other player, ball sticks to underside of putter and drops in a new position. If it is replaced, is there any penalty?

Going out on a limb here, I believe it's a one stroke penalty and the marker has to be replaced. 

Standby for correction.

He won't confirm it just yet.

I'm just going to leave the phrase "directly attributable" lying here and see what it gets us.

Just for clarification, you mean marker sticks to the putter, yeah?

20-1/6

Ball-Marker Moved Accidentally by Player in Process of Marking Position of Ball

Q.A player marked the position of his ball with a coin, lifted the ball and pressed down the coin with the sole of his putter. He walked to the edge of the green and then noticed that the coin had stuck to the sole of the putter. What is the ruling?

 

A.In this case, the movement of the ball-marker was directly attributable to the specific act of marking the position of the ball.

Accordingly, no penalty is incurred and the ball or the ball-marker must be replaced. If the spot where the ball or the ball-marker lay is not known, it must be placed as near as possible to where it lay but not nearer the hole (Rule 20-3c).

I wouldnt have thought pressing down on the marker with your putter had anything to do with marking or replacing the ball but there ya go.

How does the ball stick to the underside of the putter if the ball is picked up???

If you don't know the spot where the ball or marker lay, how can you know that the spot you replace it is not closer to the hole?

If you can read this you're too close!
