Basically if you want to return a score, you keep going until the ball is holed, otherwise you will have a NR. But this is only for medal play. In stableford you can pick up after you are two shots over your set score (see below) unless you want to return a gross score.

But when the scores are tallied, only two over your set score counts. For example if you get no shot on one hole, say a par 4, if you make a 7 your score is reduced to 6. If you get a shot on a hole, say a par 4 and you make an 8 your score is reduced to a 7. If you get two shots on a hole, say a par 4 and you make a 9, your score is reduced to an 8.
