I absolutely agree, and that's what many (most?) tournament aces are.
However, doubles is a different dynamic. Let's say your partner parks hole 7 at Terrace Creek, giving you a free ace run, and let's say you execute the exact shot you want and actually hit the ace.
That's not a shot going slightly bad. That's a euphoric experience made possible by best shot doubles. (For anyone unfamiliar, hole 7's basket is perched on a treacherous hillside that sends many seemingly good shots down the hill and OB... i.e., not a hole any sane person would try to ace if her primary concern is her score at the end of the round.)
I love me some canned worms with a nice bottle of Chianti.
