I have a psychological block playing golf – Please help?

I used to play a lot of golf, and to single figures but only play very occasionally now.
I would like to play competitively again but every time I hit a bad shot I completely fall apart and fat every shot. I feel like a grenade is going off in my hands, a bit like the yips but with the whole swing.
I also have a tendency to drop the left shoulder on the backswing which is causing the collapse of the left side and subsequent fat shots. Anyone know a good pro near London who covers the mental and physical aspects of the game?

Golfing mental game and Course Management?

Ok. I am young. 17. and a 6 handicap. I can really kill my ball and get good distance but I play with a very good senior player who is telling me to slow down on the swing. Also, ever since I have improved (greatly) I want to birdie every single hole, which is not the right attitude. Mainly, what I want to know is what a some good mental thoughts to fix all of this?

Help with some things to keep in mind during a golf swing?

I used to play golf when I was younger, but stopped. Now i started again in mid-april. I am 18 and can hit a solid drive around 295, and hit strong irons. But now i'm working on swinging easier. I can hit my 60 degree through 8 iron 100% of the time within a few yards either side of center. Once i get down to lower clubs, i experience occasional problems. Unfortanetly, one swing i might hit a weak shot very fat, and another i might skull it thin and over the hole. many of my dads friends who i've played with said that based on my first hole and swing (i always do good on #1) they thought i was around a 2. but my inconsistency is the problem. The problem is tho, my misses are big misses, i either hit the target two feet from the hole or......well i dont hit it well. Anything to keep in mind as i swing? i already have many ideas that i've been told, but im hoping one of you has a suggestion to try. i'll vote best answer as soon as i see one that shows some thought.
cheers!
