2003 European Tour
The 2003 European Tour was the 32nd season of golf tournaments since the European Tour officially began in 1972. The 2003 season consisted of 46 official money events, which included the four major championships and three World Golf Championships which were also sanctioned by the PGA Tour. Ernie Els won the Order of Merit.

Order of Merit
In 2003, the European Tour's money list was known as the "Order of Merit". It was calculated in euro, although around half of the events had prize funds which were fixed in other currencies, mostly either British pounds or U.S. dollars. In these instances the amounts were converted into euro at the exchange rate for the week that the tournament was played. The top 10 golfers in 2003 were:
|Position||Player||Country||Prize money (€)|
|1||Ernie Els||South Africa||2,975,374|
|2||Darren Clarke||Northern Ireland||2,210,051|
