             the ball between the legs and the wicket.
         (b) (Golf) To hit (the ball) with the toe of the club so
             that it is deflected toward the left.
         (c) (Billiards) To strike (the cue ball) below the center
             so as to give it a backward rotation which causes it
             to take a backward direction on striking another
             ball.
         (d) (Curling) To throw up (the stone) gently.
             [Webster 1913 Suppl.]
  
     14. To leave (a contest) undecided; as, the battle or game
         was drawn. "Win, lose, or draw."
         [Webster 1913 Suppl. +PJC]
  
     Note: Draw, in most of its uses, retains some shade of its
           original sense, to pull, to move forward by the
           application of force in advance, or to extend in
           length, and usually expresses an action as gradual or
           continuous, and leisurely. We pour liquid quickly, but
           we draw it in a continued stream. We force compliance
           by threats, but we draw it by gradual prevalence. We
           may write a letter with haste, but we draw a bill with
           slow caution and regard to a precise form. We draw a
           bar of metal by continued beating.

     Syn: To {Draw}, {Drag}.
  
     Usage: Draw differs from drag in this, that drag implies a
            natural inaptitude for drawing, or positive
            resistance; it is applied to things pulled or hauled
            along the ground, or moved with toil or difficulty.
            Draw is applied to all bodies moved by force in
            advance, whatever may be the degree of force; it
            commonly implies that some kind of aptitude or
            provision exists for drawing. Draw is the more general
            or generic term, and drag the more specific. We say,
            the horses draw a coach or wagon, but they drag it
            through mire; yet draw is properly used in both cases.
            [1913 Webster]
