Yes. All swings for every shot move the same. You may setup different for different lies, conditions or results.

Now, the term fairway woods is too general anymore. The only real difference is whether you meet the ball at the bottom of the swing arc (for like 3 wood), or just before the bottom (higher lofted woods/hybrids). There is not much difference… and when in doubt, meet the ball at the bottom of the swing arc.

What changes more (between clubs), is the width of the stance and you have to figure that out on your own for how you rotate and what is comfortable. You can watch “Ball Position & Front Hip Rotation” for more.
