The data for the elastic scattering of 288, 340, and 386 MeV alpha particles on $^{58}$Ni was analyzed using the McIntyre parametrization for the phase shift. The calculated differential cross sections for the $\alpha$ + $^{58}$Ni system fit the experimental data fairly well. The diffractive oscillatory structures observed in the angular distributions were explained as being due to the strong interference between the near-side and the far-side scattering amplitudes. The corresponding optical potentials were predicted by using the inversion procedure of the McIntyre phase shift. The inversion potentials were then compared with the available ones obtained from optical model analyses.
