After more than four months of negotiations, the LPGA and Wegmans have agreed to  once again to have Rochester host the LPGA Championship in June 2013.

The Wegmans LPGA Championship will be held at Locust Hill Country Club the first week of June  next year.  Both sides have been negotiating since July.

The tournament raises $17-million each year and brings an estimated 100,000 people to the Pittsford golf course.
