Control. It means you will have a better chance of placing it on the "fairway" than off to the side, in the "distance".

When you can put a gazelle out there straight line through the trees with your buddy's katana that he super spike hyzered around it all, you will smile much larger and feel better about your game

Fairway Drivers are used to stay on the fairway, ie straightest controlled shots. Distance drivers usually need more lateral space to "S" or flip, turnover, etc. Arm speed will determine which disc suits the thrower. A power thrower can maybe drive his putter out to like 300', where a weak arm can't get a driver out there for example. One fairway disc may not work for another player.

One big difference between fairway drivers and distance drivers, is the latter will work much better on low flying distance shots.

speed. fairway drivers are for shorter drives, or drives that are not full power. the Teebird and Eagle are two good fairway drivers. there are tons of excellent big drivers out there.

I dont know why.
I think it has to do with the spandex jumpsuit you are wearing

There is nothing about fairway drivers that limits how hard you can throw them.
