The 2012 LPGA Championship was the 58th LPGA Championship, held June 7–10 at Locust Hill Country Club in Pittsford, New York, a suburb southeast of Rochester. Known for sponsorship reasons as the Wegmans LPGA Championship, it was the second of four major championships on the LPGA Tour during the 2012 season. This was the third of four consecutive years the LPGA Championship was played at Locust Hill.

The champion was Shanshan Feng, who won with a 282 (–6), two strokes ahead of four runners-up: Eun-Hee Ji, Stacy Lewis, Mika Miyazato, and Suzann Pettersen. Following the third round, Feng was tied for seventh and three strokes back. In the final round, she shot a bogey-free 67 (–5), the lowest round of the tournament,[2] to secure her first LPGA Tour victory and move from tenth to fifth in the Women's World Golf Rankings.[3] Her best finish in 16 previous majors was a tie for 22nd.[4][5]
