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]

Tournament results[edit]

The following table shows all the official money events for the 1982 season. "Date" is the ending date of the tournament, usually a Sunday. The numbers in parentheses after the winners' names are the number of wins they had on the tour up to and including that event. Majors are shown in bold.
