English golfer David Howell says that he never considered retiring during a seven-year stint without a title.

English golfer David Howell has admitted that he never considered retirement when things were not going his way.

The 38-year-old beat American Peter Uihlein in a playoff to win the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship at St Andrews yesterday following a seven-year stint without a title.

When asked on BBC Radio Five Live whether he thought about retirement, Howell said: "Not really, as difficult as it can get, I love the game.

"It's almost part of me, so I was always going to battle on, but the last couple of years have been spent trying to turn my career around slowly.

"I've been doing that and yesterday's result was a lot of hard work over a lot of years."

Howell's last victory came at the BMW Championship in May 2006.
