Cévaër was born in Nouméa, New Caledonia, attended Stevenson School in Pebble Beach, California, and then took a golf scholarship at Stanford University in California, U.S., where he twice won the Pac-10 Championship. He also won the 1989 French Amateur Championship. He turned professional in 1993 and has spent his professional career playing mainly in Europe. Inconsistent form has necessitated several trips to the European Tour Qualifying School and he has had to split his time between the main tour and the developmental Challenge Tour. He has two European Tour titles, the 2004 Canarias Open de España and the European Open in 2009 [1] and 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.
