The Order of Merit was won by England's Nick Faldo for the second time; he previously won the title in 1983. Faldo won four official-money tournaments during the season, including The Open Championship, and also added victories in two approved special events.
The table below shows the 1992 European Tour schedule which was made up of 38 tournaments counting for the Order of Merit, and five non-counting "Approved Special Events". There were several changes from the previous season, with the return of the Dubai Desert Classic, the Tenerife Open and the Moroccan Open; the addition of the Johnnie Walker Asian Classic, the Turespana Masters, the Roma Masters, the Lyon Open V33 and the Honda Open; and the loss of the Girona Open, the Murphy's Cup, the European Pro-Celebrity and the Epson Grand Prix of Europe.
- The numbers in parentheses after the winners' names show the number of official career wins they had on the European Tour up to and including that event. Totals are only shown for members of the European Tour and are inclusive of the three United States-based major championships since, although not official tour events at the time, they have been recognised as such retrospectively. Victories in "Approved Special Events" are not recognised as official tour wins.
