Dredge was born in Tredegar. He turned professional in 1996.
Dredge attempted to gain his card on the European Tour via the qualifying school in 1995 and 1996, the second time doing sufficiently well to gain a place on the Challenge Tour for 1997. He finished 15th in the rankings, having won the Klassis Turkish Open during the season, and graduated directly to the European Tour for 1998. He failed to win enough money during his rookie season to retain his status, and returned to the Challenge Tour the following season. He was again successful with a win at the Is Molas Challenge and a second-place finish at the Challenge Tour Championship helping him to 8th on the money list, and graduation back to the European Tour.
Since regaining his European Tour card, Dredge has established himself on the elite tour, finishing inside the top 100 on the Order of Merit every season except 2000. His first win on the European Tour came at the 2003 Madeira Island Open, and in 2006 he claimed his second title at the Omega European Masters. He achieved a career best Order of Merit position of 16th in 2005, and in the post-season he won the WGC-World Cup for Wales in partnership with Stephen Dodd.
Dredge lost his full European Tour playing rights at the end of the 2012 season and failed to regain his card at qualifying school. However, he retained conditional status for 2013. Illness and injury forced him to miss most of the 2013 season, but he was granted a medical extension for 2014, during which season he played in nine tournaments. He recorded back-to-back second-place finishes, and regained his card for 2015 by finishing 81st in the Race to Dubai.
