Taking Dead Aim With Charlie Nance

Podcast Feed

"Taking Dead Aim" is the weekly look inside the world of golf on 94.7 Smoke!

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!"

For the past three years, his golf show has been a staple of the station's weekend programming, but with the new year, came a new name.

"Every now and again, you need a fresh coat of paint.  However, it'll be the same show, same passion for golf, and same ol me," Charlie says.

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.

"Taking Dead Aim w/Charlie Nance" airs Saturday mornings at 9 on Smoke 94.7.
