Brig Gen Robert L. Scott, Jr. – The Hero

The 19th Annual Brig Gen Robert L. Scott, Jr. Memorial Golf Tournament is a four-person scramble. There will be two rounds of golf to choose from; 8:00 a.m. and 1:30 p.m.  This spectacular golf tournament is held annually at an exclusive country club, in honor of the achievements of Macon’s hometown hero during World War II.  Best known as author of the book, God is My Co-Pilot and for his WWII air combat service, Robert L. Scott captured the attention of the nation in desperate need of a hero.  Challenged to carry on the winning tradition of General Chennault’s famous Flying Tigers, Colonel Scott led by example – downing a total of 13 Japanese airplanes with nine more listed as “probables”.  The life and character of this famous American airman is so much more… soar with us in celebrating of our very own hometown hero.
