WILSON JOINS REEBOK IN PUTTING DALY ON HOLD

     Wilson's 10-year, $30M contract with John Daly "went into
the rough" yesterday when the company suspended the deal for the
'94 and '95 PGA seasons (Michael Hiestand, USA TODAY, 10/6).
Wilson VP and GM for Golf Jan Thompson:  "Wilson and John Daly
will resume their relationship under a newly structured agreement
when Wilson is satisfied that John has met specific behavioral
and performance objectives."  Thompson noted while the company
"sympathizes" with Daly's personal "challenges," Wilson "expects
the highest level of sportsmanship, decorum and professionalism
from its professional advisory staff."  Wilson also released a
statement from Daly in which he states that he understands and
supports the company's decision (Glen Sheeley, ATLANTA
CONSTITUTION, 10/6).
