Battle of Garrett’s at Firecracker
Chalk up one for the coach.
Veteran Garrett Smith held off charging collegian Garrett Leek down the stretch Sunday to secure a three-stroke Championship Flight victory in the 52nd annual Firecracker Invitational Golf Tournament at the Lawton Country Club.
Smith, coach of the University of Dallas golf team, watched Leek trim a four-shot deficit to a mere stroke at the turn. He returned the advantage to two shots with a birdie at No. 12 and picked up another stroke when Leek bogeyed No. 14.
