The champion was Patty Sheehan, the winner of an 18-hole Monday playoff over runner-up Juli Inkster, 72 to 74. Tied for the lead after the third round at 211 (−2) on the par-71 course, both players shot 69 in the fourth round to finish at 280 (−4) for the championship, four strokes ahead of third-place finisher Donna Andrews. Rain delays during the first two rounds extended play to the following day.

The site of many U.S. Opens, PGA Championships, and U.S. Amateurs, this was the first U.S. Women's Open and women's major at Oakmont. The course was set at 6,312 yards (5,772 m), at the time, the second-longest in U.S. Women's Open history. The championship returned to Oakmont in 2010, won by Paula Creamer.

This was the first U.S. Women's Open for Annika Sörenstam, then a 21-year-old amateur; she made the cut on the number at 151 (+9) and finished with 308 (+24), tied for 64th.

This championship coincided with the opening weekend of the 1992 Summer Olympics in Barcelona, Spain.
