On Nov. 1 at 8 p.m. ET, ESPN will air '30 for 30: Hit it Hard,' a film about golfer John Daly.

If you're not familiar with ESPN's '30 for 30' films, they're fantastically done mini-documentaries on a variety of people, teams and scandals in sports.

The film, 50 minutes in length, followed Daly -- now 50 -- as he was preparing for life on the Champions Tour and covers his instantaneous rise to superstardom after an unlikely win at Crooked Stick in the 1991 PGA Championship, as well as his playoff victory in 1995 at St. Andrews in the Open Championship and all the highs and lows he's experienced over the last 25 years.

This morning, ESPN released a trailer of the Daly film, which you can watch here:



That's going to be some appointment television, folks.
