Competition players vs "Funzy" Players

How many of you Men/Women out there are just a "funzy" player or a Competition Player. What is the difference?

Funzy player: someone who plays mainly in local mini events, some competitions, but never spends the extra time to practice on their game. However, wants to WIN the game whenever they play.

Competition player: one who competes in events, focuses on their weak parts of their game and practices on it. Spends the extra time needed to focus on their game. Goes to the local course not just to putt around, but spends time on his upshots, drive techniques, and a variety of shots needed for their game.

I'm very competitive in pretty much everything I do. Probably to a fault sometimes.

I'm more of a 'downer' than a 'funzy'.

All of the above.

I specifically go out and practice elements of my game. I'll drag a full bag around a little pitch-&-putt course.

Then again, I may go play a round with one old, beat-up, useless disc just to see what I can do with it. Or play the course backwards. Or something else goofy.

Question fail. The only difference I see in your 2 choices are if you practice or not. Everyone practices. Where did that moronic term funzy come from? Do you want me to answer I'm a funzy frolfer? Did a funzy player beat you today? You should delete this post and start over.

do you feel its possible to be both? because by definition I would be a competition player however I realize its all about fun so if I go out and throw well great. If im not throwing well, oh well, pack it up and head home and disc golf another day. by that standard you would be a funzy player.

We have established that Johnny_Crunch is NOT funzy.

I strive to get better, and always play seriously. But I always make sure I'm having fun, and I don' play tournaments (yet). So I guess I'd say Funzy, with a competitive side.
