So I got a sneak peek at
00:01
the new ESPN 30 for 30 John Daly documentary,
00:04
and boy did it live up to the hype.
00:06
How can I describe it?
00:08
Well, what if I told you
00:10
the only full length 30 for 30 on Golf,
00:13
is also the best 30 for 30 ever made.
00:17
Okay, so Golf Digest, we're a little biased.
00:20
But seriously, Hit it Hard is fantastic.
00:23
And yes, you might remember that title.
00:25
It's also the name of our favorite John Daly original song.
00:29
♫ Taking chances, living large,
00:32
♫ I hit it, hit it, hit it hard.
00:34
JD is must see TV.
00:37
You'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll even gasp.
00:40
Like when he estimates he lost
00:42
about $55 million gambling. Yikes.
00:46
There's so many great parts jammed into this film
00:48
it's tough to keep track.
00:49
There's the time he celebrated his surprise win
00:51
at the PGA Championship by going
00:52
to McDonald's drive through in a limo.
00:55
There's the time he celebrated his surprise
00:57
British Open win by filling up
00:59
the Claret Jug with chocolate ice cream.
01:01
And just going to town.
01:03
And there are plenty of other great stories
01:04
that don't involve food.
01:06
This film is so good I'm gonna watch it again.
01:08
And I'm gonna make my wife watch with me.
01:10
In fact, it's great for the whole family.
01:13
Eh, maybe it's not great for the whole family.
01:15
Unless you want your kids to learn
01:17
that a good way to loose weight before college
01:19
is to go on a diet of Jack Daniels and popcorn.
01:22
Or, that it's a smart idea to play
01:24
seven hands of blackjack at one time.
01:27
Once you're done you'll be left with two questions:
01:30
What will be the subject of the next Golf based 30 for 30,
01:34
and how in the world did John Daly survive to tell his tale?
01:39
(upbeat music)
