Cevaer ecstatic at European win
Christian Cevaer was a proud man after claiming the second title of his career with victory at the European Open.
The world number 449 claimed the title by one shot from Steve Webster, Gary Orr and Alvaro Quiros after a final 18 holes that saw the lead change on several occasions and no individual really take the bull by the horns and make a charge at the title. The 39-year-old from France led going into the final round but was three over for his round after the first nine holes. India's Jeev Milka Singh led the field at one stage but fell back, along with England's Chris Wood, and it took five pars, followed by two birdies and two more pars after the turn for Cevaer to double his career tournament victories. Cevaer picked up a winning cheque of £300,000 at the London Club in Kent and he admitted his joy at beating a talented field in south-east England. "This is a fantastic day for me," he said. "I am ecstatic to come out on top. "What a great surprise it was to see the big leaderboard when I was coming up the hill at the 18th and that I was the only guy left on seven under. I am proud to get the job done."
