Crooner and Golfer Bing Crosby Coming to PBS

American Masters: Bing Crosby Rediscovered premieres on Tuesday, December 2 at 8 p.m. (check local listings).

Crosby was an avid golfer and is a member of the World Golf Hall of Fame. In 1937, he hosted the first National Pro-Am Golf Championship (a.k.a. the 'Crosby Clambake'), which is today's AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am

The documentary features new interviews with Bing's son Nathaniel Crosby, who has an active career in the golf business, won the U.S. Amateur championship in 1981, and hosted and ran the Bing Crosby Pro-Am tournament after his father's death for several years. Nathaniel Crosby is also the former president of Nicklaus Golf and is currently pursuing a project that will cater to affluent golf connoisseurs.

American Masters: Bing Crosby Rediscovered explores the life and legend of this iconic entertainer through never-before-seen footage and interviews with his immediate family, Tony Bennett, Michael Feinstein and others. Narrated by Stanley Tucci, this new documentary reveals a man far more complex than his public persona.
