High school golfer Emily Nash tees off at the Central Mass. Division 3 Golf Tournament at Blissful Meadows

Kocur add that Nash and her coach were reminded before the round began of the MIAA's rules by Central Mass. Division 3 boys' golf tournament director Kevin Riordan.

According to a rule for MA high school golf, girls are able to compete in boys tournaments but they are not allowed to win.

Nash, who plays on the Lunenburg golf team, finished four strokes better than any other golfer in the tournament, recording a 75 from the men's tees. It was four shots better than runner-up Nico Ciolino of the Advanced Math and Science Academy Charter School.

According to Mirror , granting the robot citizenship may mean it is illegal for the robot to be destroyed or turned off. Saudi Arabia awarded a robot citizenship on Wednesday in an historic and futuristic first for the world.

That means Nash doesn't get a trophy - or a spot in the state championship.

If there is one thing that is clear from this story, it is that Emily Nash is one heck of a golfer. But as sports fans, if there's one thing we should all come together on, it's that the player who wins a tournament is actually declared the victor.

Nash fired what should have been the winning round on Tuesday, but Massachusetts Interscholastic Athletic Association rules stipulate that girls can play in boys tournaments, but cannot compete in the boys individual tournaments. Meaning girls can play as part of a team but not as an individual in fall golf. In particular, the skill of the female golfer from Lunenburg was on display as she represented her personal ability and effort on behalf of the Lunenburg High School Boys Golf Team.

Nash wants to play golf, but she attends a school without a girls team. And as T.J. Auclair, a writer for the PGA said, the rule is "so bad it makes a shank look good".

Instead, Nico Ciolino was declared the victor with a 7-over 79. They made it to the Central Mass Division 3 golf tournament. 'She played the same tees, played under the same conditions and everything'. "Just because she's a girl, that gets taken away".

Lunenberg High School doesn't have a girls' golf team, WPBF reports.
