    Hello

    In golf terms how would I express this idea: I'm going to try to bend/curve it around that big tree.

    Voy a intentar hacer que tuerca/curvee/gire alrededor de aquél arbol grande?

    gracias

    What is "it"? For instance:

    Voy a intentar hacer que el coche teledirigido gire alrededor de aquél árbol (180º, full circle)
    Voy a intentar hacer que el coche teledirigido tuerza/gire en aquél árbol (90º, turn left or right)

    la bola de golf es lo que voy a bend around the tree. I'm going to put spin on the ball to make it curve back towards the fairway after passing the tree

    I think you might be making a curve to avoid the tree, if you see what I mean.

    Thanks Sydlexia, but I've already established how to say it in English, I am looking for the Spanish equivalent.

    Avispero,
    No conozco bien el juego de golf, pero creo que en español se utiliza la expresión " dar efecto a la pelota" para que haga cierto recorrido.
    no sé si te servirá,

    Voy a intentar dar efecto a la pelota para que pase-----etc.

    Apologies, I mean that 'curvar' doesn't work in the same active way as 'curve' in English and you need to look at the situation differently. See posts 8 & 9.
