WILSON JOINS REEBOK IN PUTTING DALY ON HOLD
Published October 6, 1994
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).
