Christel Wilhelmina Boeljon (born 30 July 1987)[1] is a professional golfer from the Netherlands, currently playing on the Ladies European Tour and the U.S.-based LPGA Tour.

Amateur career[edit]

Boeljon was born in Beverwijk. One day she joined her parents for a visit to the Golfclub Spaarnwoude, and two years later she gave up field hockey and concentrated on golf. In 2005, she continued her studies in the United States and accepted a golf scholarship to Purdue University in Indiana.[1] In her first 25 tournaments she played 24 rounds under par.

Highlights
  • 2002: won Mevrouw Swanebeker, won Dutch Junior Masters
  • 2003: won National Match Play U-21
  • 2004: runner-up National Stroke Play U-21, runner-up Stern Open
  • 2005: won National Stroke Play U-21, semi-finalist in British Ladies Amateur
  • 2006: won Dutch International Junior Open at Toxandria
  • 2007: best Dutch player at the Dutch Ladies Open
  • 2008: 8th at the Ladies Dutch Open at Eindhoven, won National Stroke Play

Professional career[edit]

Boeljon turned professional in 2009, when she returned from Purdue. She went to the Ladies European Tour's qualifying school in 2008, won the first stage and finished 4th at the final stage in 2009. She began well, she made the cut at the ANZ Ladies Masters in Australia and finished 41st. In April, she won the European Ladies Golf Cup together with Marjet van der Graaff. In June she again won the National Stroke Play. She made the cut at the 2009 Women's British Open and finished 57th.

In 2011, she played her first major in the United States, the Kraft Nabisco Championship and finished 15th. A few weeks later she won the Turkish Airlines Ladies Open in Belek, then finished 2nd at the Ladies Slovak Open, which was good enough to become the leader of the Ladies European Tour money list.
