Should fairway bunkers be placed...

...right where the golfer wants to hit the ball?

Or just very close to where the golfer wants to hit the ball?

Bunkers should be placed in all sorts of places,  but generally I would have thought placing a bunker is to protect a line of attack, not an exact place of attack.

In the fairway. After all green-side bunkers are placed green-side.

Put the fairway bunkers right in the line of instinct and make people find a line of charm.

Which golfer?
Exactly where and approximately where change depending on the player.

Legend has it that mr. Fownes, the designer and benevolent dictator of Oakmont, would see or hear of a shot played where Mr. Townes didn't like it, and the next day a bunker would be there.

The book 'Hazards' covers this quite well.
It is a bit more complicated subject than what a handful of comments on a thread can answer.
