Rule 7-2 provides a decision, a player must not make a practice stroke during the play of one hole.

In between two holes they may not take a practice stroke, but may practice chipping or putting on or near the previous putting green, the practice putting green or the teeing ground. But no stroke may be taken from a hazard.

What are the rules for match play in golf regarding practice?

In Matchplay you are allowed to practice after a completed hole, only your short game, this includes pitching and putting, but bunker shots or shots from hazards are not allowed. You can practice like this as long as it does not cause an undue delay to play. You are not allowed to practice fuller swing shots. Matchplay differs from strokeplay in one unique way. Before a matchplay round you are allowed to practice on the course, in strokeplay this is not allowed. So, before a matchplay you can play a couple of holes, or pitch and putt to any green, if you did so in strokeplay you would be disqualified.

In stroke play it would be known as a non return, as the player has not completed the hole, by holing out, in other words they have picked up. In a stableford competition it means they have exceeded the score allowed under the points system and would get nothing for the hole, also known as a ding.
