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