DALY CHECKS INTO ALCOHOL REHAB; WILSON TO STAND BY ITS MAN?

          JOHN DALY checked himself into the Betty Ford Center
     over the weekend for alcohol rehabilitation.  Daly, in the
     Memphis Commercial Appeal: "If I don't feel like I can keep
     from drinking, I'm through. ... I might not play golf again. 
     I'm going to stay here as long as it takes."  More Daly, who
     went on a reported "drinking binge" last Thursday and ended
     up being hospitalized: "I just thank God the bars close
     early in Florida.  I could have been dead.  When I woke up
     in the hospital, I knew I needed help" (HOUSTON CHRONICLE,
     3/31).  In Chicago,  the TRIBUNE's Ed Sherman notes that a
     Wilson Sporting Goods spokesperson, of which Daly is the
     "main endorser for golf equipment," had no comment on Daly's
     "latest turmoil," or whether it will pull his ads.  The
     company "has stood behind Daly in the wake of his previous
     problems" (CHICAGO TRIBUNE, 4/1).
