The 1993 European Tour was the 22nd official season of golf tournaments known as the PGA European Tour.[1]

The Order of Merit was won by Scotland's Colin Montgomerie.

As of 2014, the 1993 season was the last European Tour season in which no Spanish golfer won a tournament.


The table below shows the 1993 European Tour schedule which was made up of 39 tournaments, which included the major national opens around Europe. There were few changes from the previous season, with the addition of the Madeira Island Open and the Kronenbourg Open replacing the Volvo Open di Firenze.

The numbers in parentheses after the winners' names show the number of career wins they had on the European Tour up to and including that event. This is only shown for members of the European Tour.
