Playing a little conservative today, Annika Sorenstam walked away with her 2nd major of the year, shooting a 1-over 73, to go -11 for the tournament. Annika was never in danger of being caught.

Two teenagers had the most impressive rounds of the day. 15-year-old Michelle Wie — sporting her favorite color, fuchsia — shot 69, and finished in solo second at -8. So are there still any people out there who say Michelle shouldn’t have been given a sponsor’s exemption? Meanwhile, 18-year-old Paula Creamer shot her best round of the tournament at 67, to go -6 for the tournament. She tied Laura Davies for 3rd.

Natalie Gulbis bogeyed the last hole for a 73 today, -4 for the tourney. Natalie didn’t seem to have the same kind of ball striking as she did on Thursday and Friday playing with Annika. Natalie tied for 5th with Lorena Ochoa. It’s a really impressive leaderboard — the LPGA has a bright future ahead of it. Now, it’s time to turn our attention to the men and Pinehurst No.2 – the U.S. Open pairings have been posted.

UPDATE: With her Top 5 showing, Natalie Gulbis inched her way onto the Top 10 for the Solheim Cup standings for the U.S. team. Paula Creamer moved up to No. 16. The Top 10 go, with 2 captain’s picks by Nancy Lopez this year.
