Long Island Duo Wins 2019 Golf is Great Video Contest

Greg Padden of Farmingdale, N.Y. and Zain Nadeem of Hicksville, N.Y. have been named the winners of the 2019 PlayGolfMyrtleBeach.com Golf is Great Video Contest.

Their video was one of 10 finalists that received the highest totals of more than 143,000 total votes cast, and was selected as the winner by a panel of judges. The winning duo’s submission chronicles the plight of one (Padden) fighting the workday doldrums, as the other (Nadeem) tries to get through a day of household tasks.

What keeps these friends going? Their anticipation of what awaits them on the links later that day:



“We are beyond grateful to have been selected as the winners of the 2019 Golf is Great Video Contest. We can’t wait to see you in Myrtle!” said an excited Padden. Added Nadeem, with equal enthusiasm, “We can’t wait to come down to Myrtle Beach, to find out why it’s called ‘The Golf Capital of the World’!”

Padden and Nadeem will receive a grand prize that includes a $10,000 cash award, and a 3-night/3-round golf trip to Myrtle Beach for them and two guests – including one round of golf with golf personalities Charlie Rymer and Paige Spiranac. Their trip is slated to take place in spring 2020, and PlayGolfMyrtleBeach.com looks forward to sharing highlights of their visit!
