About this title


An extended reflection on the pleasures and wisdom of golf, "Golf Beats Us All" will satisfy the philosopher lurking in every avid golfer and make the golfer smarter and wiser about himself and his game. Author Joe Amato has long been fascinated by the myriad of pleasures offered by golf. And like any player, he remains intrigued by the fact that golfers find such pleasure in a game that causes so much pain, wastes so much time, and whose outcome is of utter insignificance. He offers an intelligent and searching conversation that invites readers to think about their relation to a game that makes them angels and fools.

About the Author:

Joseph A. Amato, a one-time caddie, driving-range manager, Evans Scholar, and player, is also a writer, historian, teacher, and philosopher. The author of fifteen previous books, Amato is the Director of Regional Studies and a professor of history at Southwest State University in Marshall, Minnesota, where he lives.
