Premier League Referee Mike Dean Is Now A Golf Caddy And He's Celebrating Hole-In-One's

Premier League Referee Mike Dean Is Now A Golf Caddy And He's Celebrating Hole-In-One's

He is known by many as an established referee in England's top flight but away from the glitz and glamour of Premier League football, Michael George Dean is involved in another major sport.

It is common knowledge that the 51-year-old has been caddying on the golf course for a number of years.

In fact, Dean was on the bag for two-time Ladies European Tour winner Stacey Peters back in 2017, when she competed at the British Open.



The Wirral-born ref has featured as a caddy on a number of occasions down the years and on Friday afternoon, he was on the bag for Australian pro Whitney Hillier.

Hillier, who has impressed on the European tour of late, actually found her peak form earlier when she landed an incredible hole-in-one at the Mediterranean Open.

Just check out the Premier League referee's reaction when the 28-year-old holed out on the par-3 17th. The absolute scenes!

She is clearly taking Dean's advice on board.

The ace on her 10th hole of the day made Hillier four-under-par for her round, and she then added a further birdie on the second to be five-under after just 13 holes.

Take a bow Whitney and her famous caddy, who is clearly delighted by the scenes unfolding before his very eyes.

Back in May, Tranmere fan and all-round entertainer Dean gave the world further reason to adore him after he was spotted celebrating like he'd just scored the winner in a World Cup final.

It happened when League Two side Tranmere Rovers were inches away from promotion after beating Forest Green in the play-off Semi-Final on Monday night

If you haven't seen this yet then you're in for a treat. Take it away, Michael.

From letting Lewis Dunk know to leave the pitch by saying "off you pop!" to becoming the first referee to reach 100 red cards, it has been a sensational year for the 51-year-old.

Never change, Mike.
