PGA Tour winners getting jackets is one of golf's coolest traditions. Obviously, there's the green one given out at the Masters, but the plaid ones for winning the RBC Heritage and Colonial are also dope. So is the red cardigan bestowed upon the winner of the Arnold Palmer Invitational. But one smaller event might have them all beat.

Introducing the Emerson Resort & Spa Woodstock Open. This event has been going on for 87 years and the winner gets a lovely bath robe. That's right, a bath robe.

This year's lucky winner happened to be our guy Michael Miller, who was fresh off a seven-shot win at the New York State Open at Bethpage Black earlier this month. And he sure looked like he enjoyed having this coveted garment put on him:

OK, so the check for $3,000 doesn't hurt, either.

But seriously, congrats to Mike for the win. And kudos to Emerson Resort & Spa for coming up with one of the sweetest—and most useful—prizes in golf.
