Welshman Bradley Dredge reveals that he is considering retiring from professional golf.

Welshman Bradley Dredge has admitted that he is considering retiring from professional golf after losing his spot on next year's European Tour.

The 39-year-old has not gained an automatic spot after missing out at the Hong Kong Open and must now face qualifying school to make the cut.

"Do I just retire and pack the clubs to the side? I don't know. Tour school isn't becoming a very attractive option," he told reporters.

"If it comes down to that and I go to tour school and I'm going to play in the back of beyond for not much money, it's not an attractive thing for me to be doing.

"It's been funny trying to battle away to try and keep my card, I haven't done that for a good few years. I haven't played very well for the past four years and gradually scoring has been getting worse."

Dredge turned professional in 1996 and has four professional tour wins to his name.
