June 18, 1995 - In the 100th staging of the U.S. Open, Corey Pavin won his only major championship, finishing two strokes ahead of Greg Norman at Shinnecock Hills Golf Club in Southampton, NY (Long Island). Pavin started the day three strokes back of third-round leader Tom Lehman. Pavin shot a final round (68), highlighted by a four-wood approach shot on the 18th that skirted the flag.
