The 1994 European Tour was the 23rd official season of golf tournaments known as the PGA European Tour.[1]

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


The table below shows the 1994 European Tour schedule which was made up of 38 tournaments, which included the major national opens around Europe. There were few changes from the previous season, with the addition of the Extremadura Open and the Chemapol Trophy Czech Open, and the loss of the Kronenbourg Open and the Madrid Open. The Roma Masters was originally scheduled before being replaced by the Tournoi Perrier de Paris, a team event with prize money not counting towards the Order of Merit.[2]

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.
