This is an ideal placement for you to be after you hit your initial shot which we have already learned takes place on the teebox. Either you hit in the fairway or rough out on the teebox. The reason why you want to be in the fairway is that it gives you a better lie, and increases your odds of being able to hit the ball more solid since it has a better lie in the fairway. From the fairway, you will want to give yourself a chance for birdie which will give a one under on that particular hole. If it is a par 4, and it takes 3 shots to get it in the hole, then that is a birdie!
