While in sure your dad would appreciate the new driver you buy him, How about buying him a fitting session? Many places will credit the fitting towards purchase of the new club. Seems like you value the importance of fitting, so this may be the route to go.
I came up with 103, and I'm sure I missed a few. 80% of them in MI. Other states I've played in: Arkansas, Arizona, California,Alabama, North Carolina, South Carolina, Florida, Montana, Ohio. No international golf yet.
