What does rainmaker mean?

High trajectory golf shot

A rainmaker is a golf term for a shot that has a high trajectory. It is so high that it seems like it could hit the clouds above and make it rain.

The shot may be hit on purpose to travel further or over a hazard. It may also be hit on accident by getting under the ball too much. It is the opposite of a "worm burner" or "quail high" shot.
