Taking a page from his cold-weather-golf book, we've rounded up the best puffer jackets to add warmth and style to late-winter, early-spring golf rounds.

Nike Therma-FIT ADV Repel Men's Full-Zip Golf Vest
If you’re inspired by Tiger Woods’ look at the Genesis invitational and ready to battle the cold to get back on the course as well, the Nike Therma-Fit ADV Repel men’s golf vest is a pretty close match. It’s a lightweight jacket with a relaxed fit to make layering easier, has knit side panels for greater mobility and water-repellent fabric just in case precipitation pops up during your return to the course.
adidas Women's Down Vest
This women’s vest is currently discounted almost $40-off the original price ($130), but it’s only available for adidas members, which is free to sign up for. The vest is made with at least 60-percent recycled materials, has a water-repellent finish and a longer hem in the back for additional coverage.
CALIA Women's Puffer Vest
Oversized puffer vests are very on-trend in the fashion world. If you’re looking to bring the look on-course, find a vest with a looser fit, wide openings at the arms and water-repellent materials—like this one from Calia. It’s also got an internal cinch draw cord at the waist for an adjustable fit and to keep the puffiness in check.
