What John Feinstein did to the PGA Tour in A Good Walk Spoiled, Mark Shaw does to the Senior Tour in Diamonds in the Rough. By chronicling an entire season, he peels off the public persona to find the personality underneath, and if there's one thing the Senior Tour is full of, it's personality. Golf's greatest mulligan, it is the ultimate in second chances in professional sports, and while the competition is every bit as intense and ego-driven as it is on the regular tour, there's also a congeniality and camaraderie that seeps into its atmosphere. Shaw captures that sensibility nicely, offering an open window into the ribbing and by-play. But the 1997 season was one of inspiring drama as well--with Gary Player winning the British Senior Open on the course and Arnold Palmer and Jim Colbert battling prostate cancer off of it. Shaw explores these worlds within a world quite well, capturing in the process the complex characters of such fairway legends as Chi Chi Rodriguez, Lee Trevino, Jack Nicklaus, and Hale Irwin. --Jeff Silverman
