If you are playing with a bunch of friends for fun, you dont have to finish out within a few feet. If you are in a tournament and it is stroke play, you must finish out. If you are playing match play, your competitor can determine if you have to finish out or not.

What does it mean when someone says they are a feel golfer?

You have picked probably the hardest phrase in golf to explain. Feel is always used to describe the short game (wedge play and putting). Say there is two golfers, each have a 50 foot putt, the first golfer, reads the putt, reads the speed and focuses on his stroke mechanics and then hits the putt, that is a good example of no feel. The second golfer, would look at the target, see how much it breaks, judge the speed and then stroke the ball to the target because he has essentially felt how to do so, this is a feel golfer. Another example would be, if the golfers had a 30 yard pitch, the feel golfer would set up and judge how to hit it, whereas a non feel golfer would be thinking how hard to hit it. The feel golfer just knows.
