Gutschewski was born in Omaha, Nebraska. He played college golf at both Creighton University and the University of Nebraska and helped lead the Huskers to a 14th-place finish at the NCAA Championships in his senior year (1999). He turned professional after graduating from Nebraska.
Gutschewski began his professional career on the Tight Lies Tour, Prairie Tour, NGA Hooters Tour and the Canadian Tour. He joined the Nationwide Tour in 2003 and finished in 26th on the money list in his rookie season. He picked up his first professional win at the Monterey Peninsula Classic. He finished in 17th on the Nationwide Tour's money list in 2004 and that earned him his PGA Tour card for 2005. In his rookie season on the PGA Tour, Gutschewski finished 149th on the money list to retain partial status on tour for 2006. His performance in 2006 was not good enough to retain his tour card but instead he earned his card for 2007 through qualifying school. Gutschewski had another poor season in 2007 but this time he was not able to retain his card through qualifying school. He returned to the Nationwide Tour in 2008 and picked up his second professional victory at the Rex Hospital Open. The victory helped him finish in 21st on the tour's money list, earning his PGA Tour card for 2009. He lost his tour card after finishing outside the top 150 and went back to the Nationwide Tour for 2010. He finished the year 20th on the money list and earned his 2011 PGA Tour card.
