At the end of the 2022 US Women's Open, champion Minjee Lee set a new all-time US Women's Open 72-hole scoring record at Pine Needles Lodge and Club in Southern Pines, N.C.

In US Women's Open history, the 72-hole scoring record is 271, with Minjee Lee winning the 2022 US Women's Open at Pine Needles Lodge and Club in Southern Pines, N.C., with a 13-under total.

Three players previously held the US Women's Open 72-hole scoring record at 272, with Annika Sorenstam setting the mark at Pine Needles in 1996. Juli Inkster tied the mark at Old Waverly in 1999, and In Gee Chun joined the group on 272 with her win at Lancaster Country Club in 2015.

Inkster's 1999 total gives her the US Women's Open record for the most strokes under par, with Lee's 13-under total now second in relation to par.
