Regardless of your goals or ability I don't think you can improve your GL unless you play comp.

All this talk of goal setting is interesting from my perspective.
My main goal is to stay alive somewhat longer so I can go out and enjoy some rounds of golf. Injuries, illnesses, accidents and physical failure are all to be avoided if possible, but we really have only minimal control over that.

As for golf, having a goal of a scratch handicap or even single figures is about as achievable as scoring a young, beautiful, rich wife. Basically zilch.

So my goals are more like 'can I score a par here?'. Knowing full well that crap happens, either because my swing failed or the golfing gods (they're quite crazy) take my ball to an undesirable place or hide it altogether. But sometimes those gods generously deflect my ball back to the fairway, let it roll out the other side of a bunker or even roll it close to the hole. Like life, it's very much a lottery. My job, as a golfer, is to take whatever happens and still try to get that little ball into the bloody hole. Playing stableford, if it all gets too much, just pick it up and start again on the next hole. The birdies are a bonus, par is great, bogeys are expected, but if worse happens, it doesn't really matter.

The important thing is to be able to get out there and play.
