The 1907 U.S. Open was the 13th U.S. Open. The golf tournament was held June 20–21, 1907, at Philadelphia Cricket Club in Chestnut Hill, Pennsylvania. Alex Ross posted four sub-80 rounds to win his first U.S. Open title by two-strokes over Gilbert Nicholls.

Alex Ross owned an 1-shot lead over Jack Hobens, who recorded the first hole-in-one in U.S. Open history in the second round, after 36-holes. Hobens led Gilbert Nicholls by one going into the final round, but then his game collapsed. He finished with an 85 to finish in 4th place. Ross began the round two behind Hobens and shot a 76 to prevail by two over Nicholls, who shot 79. Ross' brother Donald, the famed golf course architect, finished in 10th.
