Liang Wen-Chong (born 2 August 1978) is a Chinese professional golfer. He is the highest ranked golfer from the People's Republic of China and the only Chinese golfer in the top 100 of the Official World Golf Ranking. He has succeeded his mentor Zhang Lian-wei as the top Chinese player.

Liang plays on the Asian Tour and the Japan Golf Tour. He has won several tournaments in China, but his best finish on the Japan Golf Tour is second. After more than a dozen top ten finishes on the Asian Tour, he won the 2007 Singapore Masters, which was co-sanctioned by the Asian Tour and the European Tour. He was the second golfer from the People's Republic of China to win on the European Tour after Zhang Lian-wei. In August 2007 he became the first golfer from the People's Republic of China to play in the PGA Championship. He ended up missing the cut. He also received a special invitation to play in the 2008 Masters Tournament.

In 2007, Liang won the Order of Merit on the Asian Tour, becoming the first from mainland China to do so.
