Tim McCutcheon, Golf

Starting golf at 11 at Peterborough Golf & Country Club in the 1960s, McCutcheon was the Bantam and Juvenile Ontario Champion; Ontario Williamson Cup Team Champion; Ontario Team RCGA Junior Team Champion; OGA Champion of Champions; Peterborough GCC Club Champion; City of Peterborough Match and Medal Play Champion and Peterborough Junior Champion. He represented Ontario at the Canadian Junior Championships in BC and Quebec and was a two time winner of Ontario PGA Senior Summer Championship. He earned a golf scholarship to Indiana University playing two years before transferring to the University of Waterloo where he won individual and team national and provincial championships. In 1989 he coached the University of Windsor to an OUA championship. He spent three years 1975-77 on the Canadian PGA Tour playing the Canadian Open at Royal Montreal, Windsor's Essex and Glen Abbey. McCutcheon had a lengthy career as a head and teaching pro. He was 1968 Peterborough Junior Athlete of the Year and named to 1999 Waterloo University Hall of Fame; and 2008 GAO's Wall of Recognition. He is still a member of PGA Canada and recently received Life Professional status.

McCutcheon said he got emotional when Ruttan called him about his induction.

“When it's your hometown it's something you can't compare to any other award or recogntion,” he said. “It's easily the greatest honour I could ever receive because of the background and people who helped me get to that stage and the accomplishments so many people contributed to. I had the support of my parents, the people at the Peterborough Golf and Country Club and the whole city. We had a wonderful environment I know still exists.”
