Jordan Spieth lost 4 and 2 to Ernie Els on Saturday at the Match Play Championship. Spieth appeared frustrated for pretty much the entirety of the match.

He was clearly upset at shots and putts he was striking and, at times, seemed to let his emotions get the best of him.

So he took to Twitter to apologize after his round:

It wasn't really necessary -- his outbursts were nothing Tiger Woods would raise an eyebrow at -- but they're certainly appreciated by golf fans.

Especially coming from a 20-year-old.
