Shanshan Feng, 2012 LPGA Championship Winner

With an LPGA Championship Sunday leader board full of popular names like Paula Creamer, Suzann Pettersen, Stacy Lewis and Karrie Webb, it was a relatively unknown Chinese player—Shanshan Feng—who carded the best round of the entire golf tournament en route to winning her first major championship.

Feng fired an impressive, bogey-free, five-under-par 67 to win by two shots over four players—Mika Miyazato, Pettersen, Lewis and Eun-Hee Ji.

Three other players—Gerina Piller, Ai Miyazato and Webb—finished three shots back at three-under-par.

It was a week filled with great golf, typically large and enthusiastic crowds, wild weather and scores more reminiscent of a major championship than in years past here at Locust Hill.

Feng's historic victory was one of the five biggest takeaways from the 2012 Wegmans LPGA Championship. Let's take a closer look.
