You hear that term by announcers when a golfer makes a very good shot that winds up very close to the hole on the green. Fire means hit and pin means the flagstick. The golfer is trying to hit the ball as close to the flagstick as possible instead of playing the ball to one side or the other.

It will at some point rest against the pin! Regardless of that, if you putt with the pin in, and the ball is holed, you receive a two shot penalty. The scenario set out in the question means nothing.
