Yeah, I have seen that too. Most notably and I think most exaggerated ... Tiger Woods. The other, off the top of my head that I know does it is Graeme McDowell.
I have no idea, but if I had to take a wild guess I'd say that perhaps because their tendency might be to miss with a swing that is too much in to out?
But seriously, that is a complete wild guess, and I really don't know.
