Philip Furse Scrutton (1923 – 30 October 1958) was an English amateur golfer. He played in the Walker Cup in 1955 and 1957. He was killed in a road traffic accident at the age of 35.
Scrutton reached the semi-final of the Amateur Championship in 1955, losing 5&4 to the eventual winner Joe Conrad.
Scrutton died in a road traffic accident on 30 October 1958 aged 35. He was driving a car in which John Pritchett, a leading professional golfer, was a passenger, when they were hit by an army lorry on the A30, just west of Blackbushe Airport, Hampshire. Pritchett was also killed. Scrutton and Pritchett had played together in the 1958 Wentworth Foursomes, losing in the final.
In 1959 his mother and his widow donated the "Philip Scrutton Jug" which is awarded to the player with the lowest combined aggregate over the Brabazon and Berkshire Trophies.
Scrutton was twice married, to Elizabeth Ann Todhunter in 1952 and to Audrey Mary Dubery in 1957. Scrutton was chairman of a firm of stevedores and master porters and an underwriting member of Lloyd's of London.
