Christian Georges Cévaër (born 10 April 1970) is a French professional golfer.

Amateur career[edit]

Cévaër was born in Noumea, New Caledonia. He attended the Stevenson School in Pebble Beach, California. He then earned a golf scholarship to Stanford University. He won the Pac-10 Championship twice. He also won the 1989 French Amateur Championship.

Professional career[edit]

Cévaër turned professional in 1993. He has spent most of his professional career playing on the European Tour. Inconsistent form has necessitated several trips to the European Tour Qualifying School. Due to his inconsistent play he has also been forced to play on the developmental Challenge Tour. He has two European Tour titles, the 2004 Canarias Open de España and the European Open in 2009.[1] In addition, he has two Challenge Tour victories, the 1998 Volvo Finnish Open and the 2000 Finnish Masters.

His best year-end ranking on the Order of Merit has been 41st in 2004.
