Jerry Ford is the honorary caddy at the "On the Eternal Afterlife Road Open", serving the foursome of Bob Hope, Bing Crosby, "Ike" Eisenhower, and Sam Snead.  However, Ford is not allowed to touch the clubs, because even though in Afterlife, nobody gets hurt, they do not want to take any chances.  Dorothy Lamour is the honorary ball washer.
