One shot kept Texan golfer Jordan Spieth from making history. Despite an impressive comeback, putting stumbles cost Spieth the British Open on Monday. If he’d won, that would’ve made him the first player since 1953 to win the Masters, the U.S. Open, and the tournament that shall not be named in the same year.

Spieth still has a lot to celebrate. At 21-years old, he claimed the first two majors of 2015 and the distinction as the world’s no. 2 golfer. And Spieth did manage to make history, but maybe not in the way that he expected — his efforts made him golf’s bae.

Not to be confused with the South Korean PGA golfer Sang-moon Bae, the term is both short for “babe” and a backronym for “before anyone else,” reserved for the object of your affection. It’s an exclusively millennial word, meaning that even heartthrobs such as Adam Scott, 35, missed the boat on becoming the bae of young, likely newly minted golf enthusiasts.

Was it Spieth’s reliable swing or (usually) impressive putting that made him Twitter’s bae? Is it because he’s actually before anyone else in the golf world? No. Probably not.
