Ken Griffey Jr. will complete the foursome, and "other celebs" will provide holiday greetings in commercial spots. AmEx, GM, Burger King and Pepsi have all "purchased prime positions" for the show, which will be taped Thursday and will air Christmas Day. IMG's TWI will produce and manage the event (BRANDWEEK, 12/8). But "The Forecaddie" in GOLFWEEK reports that Gordon, Griffey and Will Smith will participate, but it did not have confirmation from Smith's camp (GOLFWEEK, 12/6).
