The 1982 PGA Tour season was played from January 7 to October 31, and consisted of 44 official money events. Calvin Peete, Craig Stadler, and Tom Watson won the most tournaments, four, and there were five first-time winners. The tournament results, leaders, and award winners are listed below.

The season began as the "TPA Tour," then reverted to the "PGA Tour" in mid-March.[1][2] The "Tournament Players Association" name had been adopted less than seven months earlier, in late August 1981.[3][4]
