The 1994 U.S. Women's Open Golf Championship was the 49th U.S. Women's Open, held July 21–24 at the Old Course of Indianwood Golf and Country Club in Lake Orion, Michigan, north of Detroit. Patty Sheehan, the 1992 champion, won her second title in three years, one stroke ahead of runner-up Tammie Green,[1][3][4] for the fifth of her six major titles. The event was televised by ESPN and ABC Sports.

Sheehan birdied the 16th hole and Green had a chance to force a Monday playoff, but her 12-foot (3.7 m) birdie putt on the 72nd hole did not fall.[1]

Helen Alfredsson opened with 63 (−8) on the first day to better the single round record at the U.S. Women's Open by two strokes.[2] She also set the record for the first 36 holes at 132 (−10),[5] but carded 153 (+11) on the weekend. She had been as low as 13-under after 43 holes.[4]
