I'm not working on anything in particular, I'm just trying to get a ball flight on a ball.  I'm used to a high draw, and then when I see my shadow, I'm so distracted that it puts a weak, slap cut on the ball.  It's so demoralizing and almost makes me want to stop playing, because I don't see overcoming it!
This is different from any mental block i've had.  I can't even synchronize my swing.  I hate it.  It begins with believing I can overcome this, which I do, I just don't know a step to take.
Ok guys, this is going to sound crazy, but I have lost my game when I'm standing over my shadow.  I'm a pretty good player, and for someone of my nature to be struggling like this, with something this small concerns me, and it's KILLING my game.   When my shadow is behind me, or to either side of me, it's not a problem.  I make a GREAT golf swing I can get though, and it goes nice and high with a 5 yard draw.  When my shadow is right over my ball, its a whole different...
I mean how do I present the idea to him?  How to get him to "buy into" the idea.
How do you guys suggest going to the head pro with this idea?
That comes with confidence.  Can you hit the shot you intend?  Yes?  Have you hit the shot before?  Yes?   That doesn't mean aim to the right side and magically you might hook one, it means don't let the slice hold you back from your game.  Take the left side of the course out of play.  Play with what you have that day.  Aim left side of the fairway, if it stays there straight, fine... If it slices back, take it and move onto the next shot.  You'll miss some greens if you...
Please remember this guy had to change from that swing because it tore his knee to shreds.........
Thanks a ton!  You have no idea how much I appreciate your help.  Shallow to steep produces some speed?  What we were working on, to tighten it up a little at the top, I would place a glove under my left arm.  It felt ALOT more connected, which I think is a good thing of course.  I'm open to any suggestions.  I just want to get my first collegiate victory under my belt.  Thanks.
Once again, I thank you so much for your help.  I have one more question though.  As for the shallow to steep down swing, changing the setup will allow my hands to get in a better position at the top?  Which in turn allows me to be on more of the correct plane the full time?  Thanks always --- Nick
                          I see a bit of a re-route on the way down possibly?  Swing feels GREAT though.  I feel like I can swing as hard as I want at the ball.  Tonight me and my coach were working on keeping my left arm more connected to my body at the top.  "keeping the triangle"
