Firecracker pairings announced as wide-open field shoots for title

Some spots still available for annual golf tournament

As the annual Firecracker Open golf tournament gets underway at Lawton Country Club this weekend, only two things appear to be sure bets.

The weather will be hot and the Firecracker will crown a new champion.

Well, new compared to the last two years at least.

The pairings for the 52nd Annual Firecracker Open were announced on Tuesday. And despite the absence of some notable names, including the two most recent champions, there is no less excitement as the tournament gets started on Friday with some heavy hitters prepared to take aim at the title.

As usual, the tournament will be divided into five flights, divided by handicap. The B, C and D Flights will be played across Friday and Saturday, while the A Flight and Championship Flight will play Friday through Sunday. Thursday will be a practice round for all.
