The 1992 Dunhill Cup was the eighth Dunhill Cup. It was a team tournament featuring 16 countries, each represented by three players. The Cup was played 15–18 October at the Old Course at St Andrews in Scotland. The sponsor was the Alfred Dunhill company. The English team of David Gilford, Steven Richardson, and Jamie Spence beat the Scottish team of Gordon Brand, Jnr, Sandy Lyle, and Colin Montgomerie in the final. It was the second win for England.

Format[edit]

The Cup was a match play event played over four days. The teams were divided into four four-team groups. The top eight teams were seeded with the remaining teams randomly placed in the groups. After three rounds of round-robin play, the top team in each group advanced to a single elimination playoff.

In each team match, the three players were paired with their opponents and played 18 holes at medal match play. Tied matches were extended to a sudden-death playoff only if they affected the outcome between the two teams. The tie-breaker for ties within a group was based on the total team score.
