Trophy or no trophy, Emily Nash ruled the golf course last Tuesday.
The highly regarded Lunenburg High School junior golfed her way to the top at the Central Massachusetts Division 3 boys’ golf tournament. She shot 3-over-par 75 at Blissful Meadows Golf Club in Uxbridge, besting the number-two finisher by four strokes in a field of nearly 60 competitors, including another female.
But as it turned out, Nash had no chance at the individual title, no matter how well she played that day. An arcane rule barred her from winning for real — because she’s a girl.
