He might still have a few years left as a professional footballer, but Luke Brattan has revealed his bold plan to join the senior PGA tour once he hangs up the boots.

Though the Melbourne City midfielder was dropped from Warren Joyce's side earlier this season, he has been a consistently strong performer for City. 

The 28 year old is no doubt a talented footballer and he has surprisingly strong aspirations to turn his athletic talent to the golf course in the years to come. 

"Do you want to know my plan before I’m 50 years old?” Brattan said on A Footballer’s Life podcast.

"By the time, when I finish football - hopefully, depending on how the body goes, hopefully another good handful of years.

"But from when I’m finished - whenever that is - to when I’m 50, I’ve got however many years to train to get on the senior PGA tour."

Brattan doesn't currently have a handicap but backs his golfing ability despite the fact he's yet to have any formal lessons. 

While still focused on his football, the Aussie admitted golf has become a bit of an obsession for him. 

"My Mrs thinks I’ve got a problem because I play it, I go home, I read about it, I watch it for hours on end and I’m at a point now where I want to play at the highest level possible in golf," he said.

"But that’s in the back of my head. Football is the main goal at the moment."
