Wellington - Former US Open champion Michael Campbell says he came close to quitting golf a year ago but has found fresh confidence under a new coach.

Campbell's world ranking has slumped to 731 since he won the 2005 US Open but said on Wednesday that Australian coach Gary Edwin has revived his confidence and he believes he can still win tournaments.

At home to compete in the New Zealand Open which starts Thursday, the 42-year-old Campbell said he considered quitting a year ago.

He said "I can't imagine not playing golf. I considered giving up and asked myself if I still wanted to win? I slept on it and the answer was yes I do."
