He wakes up, and after going through the forest, a man comes running to him, saying that Hyrule Castle is under attack. Arriving to the top of the castle, he finds Zelda and Ganondorf. Ganondorf challanges Link to a fight. Ganondorf is defeated, but takes Zelda to his fortress anyway. And now, Link must go to the fortress, defeat Ganondorf, and save Zelda. However, to defeat Ganondorf, Link must collect four sacred relics from four big bosses to obtain the Master Sword, and actually beat Ganondorf.

Ganondorf (1st Battle)
The Lord of Darkness

During the second phase, he fights on foot with a sword. When he throws out a more powerful version of the energy ball, called the Hyper Dead Man's Volley, fire an arrow at it. The arrow will absorb the energy and hit Ganondorf, stunning him and allowing you to hit him. Attempting to slash the ball will just have you be stunned.
