As earlier posters mentioned, I'm sure some players genuinely enjoy playing more than others
That being said, I don't think you can call out many players for not being competitive or "not caring"...you simply don't get to be the top of any field without having passion and caring about winning...add on top of that 16,000 screaming fans and I'm sure all of these guys want to win and care in during games....
The difference is which guys sit depressed in the offseason after losing in the playoffs and which guys are just happy to be with their family...I'm fairly sure there are many more in the latter than the former
I'm always amazed by the number of players in all the major sports, that don't watch the game after they are eliminated. At most a very few claim to watch some of the final. The large majority don't watch at all and just say they are played out.
I'll never forget Nicklaus response one year, when asked if he watched Tiger in the Masters on Sunday. He said he was playing golf with his grandson that day.
