    And note how I placed quotes round the word 'feel'! Sound does indeed contribute significantly to 'feel', but it's not the sole factor - imo of course!
    no it doesn't. sound has nothing to do with feel.

    "feel. to gain awareness of something through touch or being touched"

    I've never heard anyone say "i love the way that sound feels"

    I've never tried LSD. is it on draft or bottled?

    Not sure about this (though obviously don't dispute the dictionary definition...).

    There are a number of studies where sound and a golfer's perception of feel are found to be very closely linked. Here is a published paper from Loughborough Uni confirming it :

    You might also remember a series of Mizuno ads a few years ago explaining why the structure of their alloys gave a more satisfying sound (and therefore, feel).
