A two-time All-American, Tuttle was a member of the 1975 NCAA runner-up championship team. "He was the most consistent of all my golfers during my tenure as a coach," said Gus Franke, his former coach. Tuttle was a co-medalist with Hampden-Sydney's Charlie Baskervill in the 1975 Virginia State Intercollegiate golf tournament. In 1973 and 1975, Tuttle was the individual medalist at the Mason-Dixon Conference Championships, where Hampden-Sydney captured both titles. He led the Tigers to the 1974 Virginia Collegiate Athletic Association Championship and the 1975 Virginia Collegiate Championship.
In addition to his accomplishments at Hampden-Sydney, Tuttle participated in the 1974 and 1982 USGA Amateur Championships and the 1986 USGA Mid-Amateur Championship.
Tuttle lives in Lansing, Michigan, where he is a partner in Professional Consultants, Inc., a multi-service firm specializing in healthcare consulting and business management.
