Dick's Sporting Goods to Layoff Workers in Rockford

ROCKFORD (WIFR) -- One major sporting goods chain may no longer be able to help you with your golf swing.

Dick's Sporting Goods has laid off nearly 500 of its PGA Teaching Pros, including several at its East State Street location in Rockford.

This comes after the company reported slow sales of golf gear. The PGA says Dick's still employs teaching pros at its Golf Galaxy Stores, but no longer will at its Dick's locations.
