Gene Craig Sauers (born August 22, 1962) is an American professional golfer who has played on the PGA Tour and the Nationwide Tour.

Sauers was born in Savannah, Georgia. His father started him playing golf at the age of 9. He attended Georgia Southern University in Statesboro, Georgia. He turned pro and joined the PGA Tour in 1984.

Sauers has four dozen top-10 finishes in PGA Tour events including three official wins. His first win was at the 1986 Bank of Boston Classic; his second came at the rain-shortened 1989 Hawaiian Open; his third, which came after a 13-year hiatus, was at the 2002 Air Canada Championship. He also won the 1990 Deposit Guaranty Golf Classic before that became an official money event. Sauers also finished two other tournaments in a tie for first-place at the end of regulation: the 1992 Bob Hope Chrysler Classic which he lost on the fourth extra hole of a playoff to John Cook, and the 1994 Federal Express St. Jude Classic which he and Hal Sutton lost to Dicky Pride. He received the 2002 PGA Comeback Player of the Year award. His best finish in a major was T2 at the 1992 PGA Championship.[1]

Sauers lost his Tour card in 1995 and had to play primarily on the Nationwide Tour before gaining a two-year exemption as a result of his victory in the Air Canada Championship. He recorded one victory in this venue at the 1998 NIKE South Carolina Classic, and about a dozen top-10 finishes.[2]
