— Hitting a ball back to a practice area or to another player, when done solely as a courtesy.
— Strokes made by a player in playing out a hole whose result has been decided.

Between two holes, a player must not make a practice stroke.
Exception – Where Player Allowed to Practise Putting or Chipping: The player may practise putting or chipping on or near:
— The putting green of the hole just completed and any practice green (see Rule 13.1e), and
— The teeing area of the next hole.
— But such practice strokes must not be made from a bunker and must not unreasonably delay play (see Rule 5.6a).
