The 1992 LPGA Championship was the 38th LPGA Championship, played May 14–17 at Bethesda Country Club in Bethesda, Maryland, a suburb northwest of Washington, D.C.

Betsy King won the fifth of her six major titles, eleven strokes ahead of runners-up JoAnne Carner, Liselotte Neumann, and Karen Noble.[1] She led by five strokes after 54 holes,[2] and her victory margin was the largest to date, passing Patty Sheehan's ten-stroke win in 1984,[1] and it stood until 2010. King was the first to card all four rounds in the sixties in an LPGA major;[1] it was her only win at the LPGA Championship.

This was the third of four consecutive LPGA Championships at Bethesda Country Club.
