Valentino Dixon spent 27 years of a life sentence in prison for a murder he didn’t commit.
After his 2018 release, Dixon credited the numerous golf paintings he created during his incarceration for keeping him going. Dixon’s story has been well-documented by golf media, and was originally told by Golf Digest. That reporting played a major role in Dixon’s release.
Now, Dixon’s story is among the features in the season premiere of HBO’s Real Sports with Bryant Gumbel, which is celebrating its 25th season.
The show first ran on Tuesday and is also available on HBO and to stream on HBO Max.
