1991 European Tour

The 1991 European Tour was the 20th official season of golf tournaments known as the PGA European Tour.[1]

The Order of Merit was won by Spain's Seve Ballesteros.


The table below shows the 1991 European Tour schedule which was made up of 35 tournaments, which included the major national opens around Europe. There were several changes from the previous season, with the return of both the Catalan Open and the Jersey Open, the addition of the Girona Open, the loss of the Atlantic Open, the Dubai Desert Classic (due to the Gulf War), the Tenerife Open, the AGF Open, the El Bosque Open, and the Scandinavian Enterprise Open and the PLM Open merging to create the Scandinavian Masters.

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.
