Taking Dead Aim With Charlie Nance

Podcast Feed

Taking Dead Aim is the weekly look inside the world of golf. The host, Charlie Nance approaches the game-as you do-from a fan's perspective as well as having been a low, single-digit handicap his entire adult life;  or as he puts it, "If I hadn't gotten married and had a kid, I'd have been scratch a long time ago!"

From local golfers making waves on the national scene like Scott Harvey (US Mid-Am runner-up and Carolina amateur golfing legend), to respected teachers of the game like Hank Haney (Tiger Woods' former instructor), to World Golf Hall-of-Famers like Curtis Strange, to the finest golf journalists and commentators, there's nothing Charlie enjoys more than to talk the game with all who love it, play it and cover it on a weekly basis.
