European Tour Profile - Greg Hutcheon


Claimed his third European Challenge Tour title in April 2003, when his

 eight under par total of 284 gave him a two shot victory over fellow Scot

 Scott Drummond and England’s Jamie Little in the Panalpina Banque

 Commerciale du Maroc Classic on the famous Red Course at Royal

 Golf Dar Es Salam in Rabat. First victory came in the Formby Hall

 Challenge in 1999 after a delayed play-off against subsequent

 Qualifying School winner and fellow Scot, Alastair Forsyth. Stayed in 15th

 place on the Challenge Tour Rankings to gain his European Tour card

 that year after Spain's José Manuel Lara missed an eight foot birdie putt

 on the final green of the First Cuba Grand Final. Finished 164th on the

 Volvo Order of Merit in 2000 and returned to the Challenge Tour where

 he won his second title in 2001, the Credit Suisse Private Banking Open.

 Learned the game under the guidance of the late Doug Smart, the

 Banchory professional who also nurtured the talent of 1999 Open Golf

 Champion, Paul Lawrie. Left Banchory Academy, near Aberdeen, to join

 the Golf Club on a Youth Training Scheme programme. Took up a golf

 scholarship at Lamar University in Texas, where he studied for two years.

 Returned to Scotland in 1991 and turned professional four years later,

 moving to Knowle Park in Kent where he was coached by Peter Gill.
