Valentino Dixon had by no means set foot on a golf course. He might’ve hardly imagined that golf would ultimately lead him to a brand new lease on life.
For 27 years, Dixon had been serving a jail sentence for a homicide he claims he didn’t commit. In September, Dixon was launched from jail following a collection of occasions that started with a sketch depicting one in all golf’s most iconic holes, Augusta Nationwide Golf Membership’s famed par-3 12th gap, which he created for Attica Correctional Facility’s superintendent.
Golf Channel’s newest Golf Movies mission, 27 Years: The Exoneration of Valentino Dixon (Tuesday, December 11, at 8/7c), reveals how Dixon’s drawing finally led to a re-examination of his case, and follows Dixon as he visits picturesque Pebble Seaside, the primary golf course he’d ever seen in individual.
“I can’t clarify it. It’s peaceable. The one time I actually had any peace from the place I got here from was when my dad took me fishing. Drawing golf programs type of jogged my memory of that.” – Dixon
