The Order of Merit was won by Wales' Ian Woosnam.
The table below shows the 1987 European Tour schedule which was made up of 28 tournaments, which included the major national opens around Europe. There were several changes from the previous season, with the addition of the Moroccan Open and the German Masters, the return of the Belgian Open, and the loss of the Car Care Plan International and the Sanyo Open.
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.
