WATCH: Jordan Spieth questions caddie Michael Greller after bad club selection

Jordan Spieth sparked the trend of using first-person plural when describing things that happen on the golf course. He typically uses "we" -- referring to himself and caddie Michael Greller -- when things go right. He usually sticks with the first-person singular -- "I" -- when things go poorly.

It didn't quite work that way on the par-4 sixth hole on Friday at The Players Championship 2016.

Spieth had 119 yards in to the hole location on the shortish hole, and Greller was sure wedge was the way to go. Spieth wasn't certain, but after Greller said he "loved" the selection, Spieth went with it. Unfortunately, Spieth's shot came up well short of the green, and that led Spieth to question the whole sequence.

"That's not even close," Spieth said. "That's not even close to the right club. What are we thinking, dude?"

The 22-year-old has a right to be frustrated, but ultimately that choice falls on the player to buy in and execute the shot.

Spieth went on to make bogey on the hole. That club selection could make a difference in Spieth making the 36-hole cut or not. When play suspended Friday evening due to darkness, Spieth was a shot outside the cut line with four holes to finish.

THAT WAS FUN, RIGHT?!
