Last weekend, Justin Verlander held back. As ultra-competitive as he is, Verlander had to work not to display it on the golf course, as he played in the Pebble Beach Pro Am. He wanted to win, but he wanted to enjoy the experience. "If I tried to go into game mode like I was starting, I'd have been the worst partner in the history of golf," Verlander said Monday in Lakeland, Fla.
