The 19th hole
In this day of finely chiseled golfers, it's hard to imagine the success of John Daly, whose drive was almost as daunting as his hefty build and ability to put away beer. Filmmakers Gabe Spitzer and David Terry Fine examine the colorful athlete's heyday in a new "30 for 30" documentary, "Hit It Hard."

"The Battle of Chosin" may not be on Hollywood's radar, but this latest "American Experience" documentary makes a strong argument that it should. The turning point of the Korean War, in which Gen. Douglas MacArthur was outwitted by China's Mao Zedong, makes for a chilling example of both the price of overconfidence and the depths a man will dig to survive. Somber, heartbreaking testimonials from veterans fuel this important film.

Still weighing in
Old anchors don't die and, in the case of Dan Rather, they don't fade away, either. Long after he was booted from CBS for a sloppy investigation of President George W. Bush, the newsman is still poking his nose into politics with "America Divided: The Rise of Trump Nation." It'll be interesting to see the tone of the one-hour documentary, as Rather's current boss is Donald Trump nemesis Mark Cuban.
