Please join author and radio host Michael Shiels on Saturday, September 23rd from 2 p.m. – 4 p.m. to celebrate I Call Him “Mr. President”: Stories of Golf, Fishing, and Life with My Friend George H.W. Bush. This free event is an in-store book signing. 

In I Call Him “Mr. President”: Stories of Golf, Fishing, and Life with My Friend George H.W. Bush, Ken Raynor—head professional at Cape Arundel Golf Club in Kennebunkport, Maine for thirty-eight years—tells the story of how President George H.W. Bush befriended him during Bush’s annual summer sabbatical to seaside Kennebunkport, Maine. Raynor’s personal relationship with Bush led him to experience everything from fishing trips to the wilds of Newfoundland to countless outings on the golf course, including Bush’s last as commander in chief. 
 
Raynor assisted Bush, a WWII veteran, in welcoming world leaders, former presidents, celebrities, and PGA Tour stars to the quaint Cape Arundel Golf Club and saw the excitement in their eyes during the outings. He most cherished his time after the rounds, in the Bush family home on nearby Walker's Point or in a tiny fishing boat, when the president would put his feet up, stare out at the Atlantic, and recount the days’ events. In this book,
Raynor reflects on the life lessons he gained from a friendship born outdoors that has continued to develop over decades, during golf outings that have ranged from Maine to Augusta National to the White House putting green, international fishing trips, retreats at Camp David, flying in Marine One, and many other unforgettable experiences.
 
 
Ken Raynor is a golf professional and teaching specialist. He was inducted into the Maine Golf Hall of Fame in 2005 and chairs the New England PGA Scholarship fund. He resides in Kennebunkport, Maine and Boca Grande, Florida, and fishes both locations with enthusiasm. Raynor has likely played more rounds with a POTUS than any PGA professional in history.

 Michael Patrick Shiels is the author of Golf’s Short Game for Dummies, Secrets of the Great Golf Course Architects, and more. A member of the Society of American Travel Writers, Shiels was as an advance volunteer for Bush's two presidential campaigns and serves on the committee for the George H. W. Bush Celebrity Golf fundraiser in Kennebunkport. He resides in Michigan, where he hosts an award-winning syndicated morning radio program.
