The 2000 European Tour was the 29th official season of golf tournaments known as the PGA European Tour.
The Order of Merit was won by England's Lee Westwood who won six times during the season to end Colin Montgomerie's seven-year reign as Europe's number one.
The table below shows the 2000 European Tour schedule which was made up of 44 regular tournaments, which included the four major championships and the World Golf Championships. 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.
