Video: Max Adler talks with Jimmy Roberts about Golf Digest story
The debut episode of "In Play with Jimmy Roberts," on Golf Channel on Tuesday told the story of Valentino Dixon, a prisoner in Attica Correctional Facility who discovered an unlikely pastime drawing golf holes.
Dixon's story first appeared in the July issue of Golf Digest, in a feature co-written with staff writer Max Adler. In this video extra with Roberts, Adler reflects on Dixon's case -- his murder conviction still very much remains in question -- and how it first came to his attention.
"It was a great surprise," Adler tells Roberts of receiving his first correspondence from Dixon. "I came to the office one morning and there was a plain white envelope with a return address for Attica Correctional and I had no idea what was going to be inside."
