2002 European Tour

The 2002 European Tour was the 31st season of golf tournaments since the European Tour officially began in 1972. The 2002 season consisted of 45 official money events, which included the four major championships and three World Golf Championships which were also sanctioned by the PGA Tour. Also on the schedule were two team events, the Seve Trophy and the Ryder Cup.

The Order of Merit was won by Retief Goosen.

Order of Merit

In 2002, the European Tour's money list was known as the "Order of Merit". It was calculated in euro, although around half of the events had prize funds which were fixed in other currencies, mostly either British pounds or U.S. dollars. In these instances the amounts were converted into euro at the exchange rate for the week that the tournament was played. The top 10 golfers in 2002 were:

Position Player Country Prize money ()
1 Retief Goosen  South Africa 2,360,128
2 Pádraig Harrington  Ireland 2,334,655
