The 1995 U.S. Open was the 95th U.S. Open, held June 15–18 at Shinnecock Hills Golf Club in Southampton, New York. Corey Pavin won his only major championship, two strokes ahead of runner-up Greg Norman.

Norman began the tournament with rounds of 68-67 before falling back to 74 in the third round, while Tom Lehman fired a third-round 67 to tie Norman for the 54-hole lead. Pavin was three back after rounds of 72-69-71. Norman and Lehman were still tied at the turn, but then Lehman bogeyed 11 and Norman bogeyed 12. Pavin had recorded a birdie at 12, which brought him into a tie with Norman, Lehman, and Bob Tway. Norman and Tway each then suffered bogeys, while Pavin took sole possession of the lead with a birdie at 15. Even with a Norman birdie at the 15th, his first since the opening hole of the third round, nobody could catch Pavin. He sealed the victory with a 4-wood approach to the 18th, running across the fairway as the ball was in the air and raising his hands in triumph after it landed on the green. He carded a 68 and a 280 total, two shots ahead of Norman, who shot a 73.

In the final round, Neal Lancaster set a new tournament record with a 29 on the back-nine. Tiger Woods, the reigning U.S. Amateur champion, played in his first U.S. Open but withdrew during the second round with a wrist injury.

This was the third U.S. Open at Shinnecock Hills; it previously hosted in 1896 and 1986. It returned nine years later in 2004.
