STANFORD, Calif. - Former Stanford golfer Christian Cevear (1989-'92) took home the 2009 European Open title on May 31 at The London Golf Club in Ash, Kent, England. The championship was the second title of his career while on the European Tour.
The Frenchman shot a seven-under-par 281 on the par-72 course, posting rounds of 67, 70, 70, and 74 to beat out Gary Orr, Alvaro Quiros, and Steve Webster by one stroke.
While on The Farm, Cevaer was a two-time Pac-10 Individual Champion, winning his freshman (1989) and senior years (1992). He also helped the Cardinal to the Pac-10 title in 1992. He was a two-time All-American, earning third team honors in 1992 and an honorable mention in 1990 and was a three-time first-team All-Pac-10 selection from 1989-90 and again in 1992.
Cevaer is currently fifth on Stanford's career low stroke average lists at 72.7 and won the 1989 Steele Award (lowest freshman stroke average) with a 72.5.
