Video: Max Adler talks with Jimmy Roberts about Golf Digest story


By GolfDigest.com Staff

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."
