European Tour 72-Hole Scoring Records (Total Strokes and Under Par)

Ernie Els has some of the European Tour's lowest 72-hole scores

Which golfers have gone the lowest on the European Tour? Below we see the European Tour records for lowest 72-hole stroke total and for most strokes under par over 72 holes.

The record-low stroke total is 258, and the Euro Tour's 72-hole record for strokes under par is 29-under.

A couple golfers overlap between the two lists. But only one golfer appears twice on one of the lists: Ian Woosnam. Woosnam has two of the lowest 72-hole stroke totals in European Tour history, including sharing the all-time record.
