The table below shows the 2000 European Tour schedule which was made up of 44 tournaments counting towards the Order of Merit, which included the four major championships and three World Golf Championships, and several non-counting "Approved Special Events".
There were several changes from the previous season, with the Alfred Dunhill Championship replacing the South African PGA Championship due to sponsorship reasons, the addition of two tournaments celebrating the 500th anniversary of the discovery of Brazil by Pedro Álvares Cabral in 1500, the Greg Norman Holden International, the Celtic Manor Resort Wales Open and The Eurobet Seve Ballesteros Trophy, and the loss of the Estoril Open, the German Open and the Sarazen World Open. Money earned from the Masters Tournament counted towards the Order of Merit for the first time.
- The numbers in parentheses after the winners' names show the number of official career wins they had on the European Tour up to and including that event. Totals are only shown for members of the European Tour and are inclusive of the three United States-based major championships which were included on the schedule for the first time in 1998 and have been retrospectively recognised as official tour wins. Victories in "Approved Special Events" are not recognised as official tour wins.
- Limited field events were not eligible for ranking points between 2000 and 2003.
