Sentence/Example of Stymies:
I believe it is the law that there are no stymies in a three-ball match.
There is one remark which James Braid makes about stymies which I should like to refer to here.
Eight of ten stymies should present no more difficulty than an ordinary put.
The fact which must be driven home is that some stymies are negotiable and others are not—not by any player or by any method.
If the ball that stymies you is on the lip and your own is three yards away, it is obvious that you cannot pitch over it.
