In 1981, Beutel made the semi-finals of the Sofia Open.[3]

He was the German National Champion in 1982, for both indoor and outdoor singles and in the outdoor doubles.[3] Also that year he reached the quarter-finals in Linz and was a doubles runner-up in Cologne.[3]

Beutel was a singles finalist at Cologne in 1983, beating Carlos Kirmayr, Shlomo Glickstein, Eric Jelen and Pavel Složil en route.[3] He made the quarter-finals at Bastad the following year.[3]

He won two Grand Slam matches during his career, both at the Australian Open.[3] In the 1984 tournament, he defeated countryman Jelen in the opening round, before going down to Tarik Benhabiles in five sets.[3] At the 1989 Australian Open he came from two sets down to overcome Laurent Prades in the first round.[3] He was eliminated in the second round by 14th seed Jonas Svensson.[3]
