1982 European Tour
The 1982 European Tour was the 11th official season of golf tournaments known as the PGA European Tour and organised by the Professional Golfers' Association. It was the first year that the schedule included a tournament outside Europe, visiting North Africa for the Tunisian Open.
The Order of Merit was won by Australia's Greg Norman.
The table below shows the 1982 European Tour schedule which was made up of 27 tournaments, which included the major national opens around Europe. The other tournaments were mostly held in England, Wales and Scotland. There were several changes from the previous season, with the addition of the Tunisian Open, the Car Care Plan International and the Sanyo Open, the return of the Portuguese Open, and the loss of the Greater Manchester Open.
*The three majors played in the United States were not official money events, but wins in them were retroactively made official.
Official Money ListEdit
