–noun; a person who quits or gives up easily, esp. in the face of some difficulty, danger, etc.
Just to make this clear.
(this has nothing to do with "real" injuries or health concers.)
Unfortunately we have issues in our Club with certain members Quitting in the face of pressure, or if they are not in contention. These players know who they are and so does everyone else. It is also obvious that these players are habitual Quitters and have now made a name for themselves.
I am not asking for excuses. The so-called "reason" is unimportant unless it is an emergency or a injury that forces you to retire fromt the round. Many player's claim they are not having fun, or they are angry and frustrated, therefore must quit the round. I wonder what would have happened to Ken Climo, if everytime he had faced difficulty he decided to Quit because he wasn't having fun. For some reason I don't believe he would be adorned with 12 World Title Trophies and his long long list of accomplishments that will leave his name synonimous with disc golf for all time.
While growing up in Clearwater in the late 90's and early 00's I was lucky enough to watch and sometimes play with the greatest players in FL and the world. The level of maturity and sportsmanship was clearly evident which showed just how grand their love of this sport was and is.
