The 2002 Buy.com Tour season ran from March 7 to November 2. The season consisted of 28 official money golf tournaments; three of which were played outside of the United States. The top 15 players on the year-end money list earned their PGA Tour card for 2003. It was the final year in which the tour was sponsored by Buy.com, before it was replaced by current sponsor Nationwide.

Schedule[edit]

The number in parentheses after winners' names show the player's total number of wins on the tour including that event. No one accumulates many wins on the tour because success at this level soon leads to promotion to the PGA Tour.
