IN any endeavor not only is it necessary for one to start correctly, but it is imperative and vital that one follow through to a complete conclusion. An outstanding result of steadfast, complete adherence to an idea is the Christian Science textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures." Each step necessary to the consummate whole was taken by the author, Mary Baker Eddy. She says (The First Church of Christ, Scientist, and Miscellany, p. 111), "The textbook of Christian Science maintains primitive Christianity, shows how to demonstrate it, and throughout is logical in premise and in conclusion."

Golfers find that each step of a swing is a necessary component of a good shot. To begin rightly is requisite to a fine ending. Each step, including the follow through, is a necessary part of the perfect whole. Taking one's stance correctly, addressing the ball, starting the back swing—each is important, as is the downward sweep all the way along to the impact with the ball. These steps alone, however, will not make for an excellent result, for it is necessary to complete the swing with the follow through. If this is not done, the ball may either hook to the left or slice to the right. With the correct follow through, the ball will shoot right down the center of the fairway.

Although golfers prefer to play the eighteen holes around a golf course rather than to practice, the golfer who practices will improve his game. He will have confidence in choosing each club and in using it correctly for each given position and lie.
