Paired with Annika Sorenstam (and Gloria Park), Natalie Gulbis shot a first round 67, -5 at the LPGA’s second major of the year, the McDonald’s Championship at Pete Dye designed Bulle Rock Golf Course. Natalie closed with 5 straight birdies! Fantastic first round. Natalie’s scorecard here.

Natalie’s currently in the lead. In the afternoon, Laura Diaz and Laura Davies also shot 67 to tie for the lead with Natalie. Annika, who shot 68, is now tied for fourth at -4, along with the likes of 18-year-old Paula Creamer. Michelle Wie posted an impressive -3. Leaderboard here.

If you don’t know who Natalie Gulbis is (where have you been?), see her 2-part interview with The Golf Blog below. In it, you’ll see that Natalie loves playing with Annika — which was proven again today — and that Natalie has worked really hard for this moment. And to those naysayers who questioned why we’ve been following Natalie’s play this year, we rest our case.

UPDATE: Baltimore Sun (registration required) has an audio clip from Natalie Gulbis’s and Annika Sorenstam’s post-round interviews. Here are links to pics of Natalie and Annika from today.
