Drill one hole. Put the bolt in that hole. Line it up straight, check again, and again. Then drill a second hole. Put a bolt in and check again. Keep repeating until all bolted up.
Don't drill oversize holes, that just makes slop that will keep the fender from lining up. Just big enough for the bolts and no more.
Don't bolt the fender on if the forks are twisted up. Straighten the forks first.
Don't drill holes through the tire.
