Not that I know of. Nat used to do it when she was pissed about something, or pouting. I didn't like that. It looked stupid.

I can't see a reason to do this.  Once I hit my tee shot, my driver head doesn't touch the ground again until either I'm taking address at the next driver shot or I'm measuring club-lengths.

It's a form of meditation.  The golf club assumes the role of a teddy bear, or toy car, and the golfer regresses in age appropriately.  It recalls the age of wonder...when simple acts seemed both profound and mundane simultaneously.

It acts like a lightning rod. All the negative feelings generated by the bad drive are sent into the ground, thus ensuring an equanimity of mood for the next shot! Well, at least until the player sees where they wound up.

I saw Charley Hull do it at the Women’s Open Championship. Maybe this is something the young uns’ know about, not get off the lawn like me. 

They do it after they hit a good drive.

The young uns' don't know shit. That's why they eat Tide Pods.

Perhaps he was too weak to lift the club after "blasting" that drive...
