1 example is hole 10 on Pebble Beach
Your observation Is correct.
The analogy I would use Is Skipping/Skimming a Stone on a lake, Mostly to do with shallow angle of attack/entry. You throw the stone at too much off an angle & well .... but If you get a shallow angle of attack well ... Then you could be Inducted Into The Guinness World Book of Records! ;)
If the green was below or way below you the ball would hit the green with a steep angle of attack & stop quicker but with Pebble #6 for example as the green Is way above you the ball comes in very flat especially with a strong tailwind & Is hard to stop even with full back spin unless you get the perfect dead bounce at the correct spot.
Hope that makes sense to you.
