     Wilson Sporting Goods is downsizing its corporate group and
golf division, effective immediately.  Eighty-five positions in
Wilson's Chicago-based corporate group and golf division are
affected and of the total, 15 positions are in the company's
Humboldt, TN, golf plant.  Wilson will offer transition packages,
including outplacement services and severance pay for the
employees affected.  Wilson President Jim Baugh said the company
will not eliminate any categories in its golf line, but will
evaluate and may discontinue unprofitable products within select
categories.  A search is currently underway for a new GM for
Wilson Golf (Wilson).  Former Golf GM Kim Ignatius resigned
before Baugh took over.  A Wilson spokesperson told THE DAILY the
cuts are concentrated on mid-to-lower-level personnel (THE
