The 1993 U.S. Women's Open Golf Championship was the 48th U.S. Women's Open, held July 22–25 at Crooked Stick Golf Club in Carmel, Indiana, a suburb north of Indianapolis. Five strokes back after three rounds, Lauri Merten fired a 68 (–4) to win her only major title, one stroke ahead of runners-up Donna Andrews and Helen Alfredsson, the 54-hole leader.[2][3]

This Open set a record for sup-par rounds at 89; the previous record was 66 in 1988. The par-72 Pete Dye-designed course was set at 6,311 yards (5,771 m), the third-longest in the championship's 48-year history. Only nine rounds were under par on Sunday.[1]

Two years earlier, Crooked Stick was the venue for the PGA Championship, won by John Daly. It later hosted the Solheim Cup matches in 2005, won by the United States.
