The 1994 Open Championship was the 123rd Open Championship, held from 14–17 July at Turnberry Golf Resort, Scotland. Nick Price won the second of his three major championships and only Claret Jug, one stroke ahead of runner-up Jesper Parnevik. Price finished three-under over the final three holes to shoot a 66 (–4), while Parnevik, in the group ahead, bogeyed the 72nd hole to miss a playoff.[2][3] It was the first of two consecutive majors for Price, who won his second PGA Championship a month later.
