A New Chapter for Phil Arthur

Hi friends,

It’s been a crazy year to say the least.

Despite COVID-19, I think the disc golf community has fared quite well. Prodigy Disc experienced one of its best years on and off the course. Chris Dickerson and Kevin Jones capped the year off with two very significant victories.

As I look forward to 2021, I have three exciting new initiatives to share with my family and my extended DG family.

  1. Developing a disc golf destination/manufacturing property (possibly in Florida, Georgia, or North Carolina)
  2. Providing a disc design and molding consulting service (I will really enjoy this as I love to help others succeed)
  3. A line of discs focused specifically on scoring

With the new initiatives, there are plenty of opportunities to be involved. I will be looking for co-branding collaborators and extending a few investment opportunities.

Lastly, I was approached about doing a documentary. The project will highlight my career as a player, my views on the future of the game, and provides a behind the scenes look into starting these new initiatives…showing all the ups and down. It’s going to be an exciting next two years as we work on this.

I think it’s worthy of note, I will no longer be actively involved with Prodigy Disc. My relationship with them is a positive one. I believe they are strategically positioned for a bright future. Prodigy Disc will continue to move onward and upward.

For me, I have high expectations of what’s to come. Let’s all enjoy the off-season and start 2021 off with a bang!

Birdies & Aces,

Phil Arthur
