Overview

Living life as a bachelor provides an abundance of freedoms.

You can eat pizza for breakfast and cereal for dinner. There’s little pause to wearing the same shirt on consecutive days. You make a trip to the store to buy new boxer shorts to avoid washing laundry. The floor is your closet and the bed is only made minutes before you make it with your latest conquest. The toilet seat remains up, the sink full of dishes, the vacuum only sees action when your mother visits, and cooking dinner requires a can opener and a microwave.

But when a woman arrives on the scene, the single man’s life changes, especially if he spends an inordinate amount of time on a golf course. But it doesn’t have to be for the worse.

Thus begins, “The Married Man’s Guide to Golf,” Kevin’s new eBook that will be released on September 18, 2012. “The Married Man’s Guide to Golf” is based on Kevin’s transition from bachelor to married man, and how other golfers can benefit from his lived experience.

Humor is abundant as Kevin guides and advises men on how to play through some of the hazards of golf and marriage. He’s developed a golf pre-nup, writes about how to deal with golf grief, what to do when the little golfer arrives and most importantly, how to play more golf without sending your marriage out of bounds.
