Hole in one

Here's a golf documentary with more on its mind than helping viewers perfect their swings. "27 Years: The Exoneration of Valentino Dixon," a new film about the wrongly imprisoned artist whose vindication started with his sketch of Augusta's famed 12th hole. The film, narrated by Wendell Pierce, follows the newly released Dixon as he visits his first golf course. NBC will also air the movie on Dec. 23.

He's got a point. Iron Mike didn't participate in this latest "30 for 30" documentary, but Douglas carries the weight with details of how he pulled off the unlikely win.
