Hutsby had a successful amateur career, working under the tutelage of golf coach Sam Torrance until they broke up in June 2008. In 2009 he lost the finals of The Amateur Championship at Formby Golf Club to Matteo Manassero, the youngest winner ever. He won the Spanish Amateur in 2006, which allowed him to play in the Spanish Open, and lost the Spanish finals to Reinier Saxton in 2009.
In April 2009, Hutsby was 6th on the World Amateur Golf Ranking, the highest ranked English player at that time.
His first appearance as a professional was in October 2009 at the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship, which was won by Simon Dyson. At the year-ending Qualifying School Hutsby finished 2nd behind Simon Khan, to earn a place on the European Tour for 2010. At the end of his rookie season he lost his playing rights by a single position, so in 2011 he played on the Challenge Tour, where he finished 48th on the ranking.
Hutsby returned to the Qualifying School in December 2011, finishing second once again behind David Dixon to secure a European Tour return.
