Photos from today’s round have been posted by The Golf Channel, including a classic one of Annika, Michelle Wie, and Paula Creamer with Ronald McDonald. (More pics from LPGA.) Who says you can’t have fun at a major?

Interviews of Annika Sorenstam, Michelle Wie, and Paula Creamer are posted on the LPGA’s website. The rivalries are already brewing — here are a few “money” lines:

Q. On different levels, what Michelle did, is that as impressive as it is for you to win this? Is it as impressive for her to do what she did?

ANNIKA SORENSTAM: I don’t really know how she feels about her game. I’m sure she’s very happy with her finish. You know, I’m not going to compare my results with hers. I think I was under totally different pressure. This is what I wanted. I came here and I won. Michelle had an outstanding performance. There’s no doubt about it.
Q. What do you think the odds would have been at the start of the year that Annika could win the Grand Slam, and what do you think the odds are now?

MICHELLE WIE: Well, you know, I think she put a lot of pressure on herself last year saying she wanted to win the Grand Slam. This year she has a very high possibility. She has two more left, but I think all the other players, including me, are going to practice harder trying to stop her. I really admire her. Her goals are really high, but, you know, I’m trying to go for one major, too, so maybe she can win three.
Q. Did you see Michelle’s (Wie) name up there at all or did you even look at the leaderboard?

PAULA CREAMER: I did. I’m a leaderboard kind of girl. I’m trying not to do it as much, but it’s at the top so you can’t miss it.

UPDATE: Natalie Gulbis recaps her fine 5th place showing here. As we report below, Natalie’s finish pushed her onto the Top 10 for the Solheim Cup. She goes out of her way to thank her family and friends — all those “people call me after good and tough rounds, and I can never thank them enough, or be able to tell them how much I appreciate their support day in and day out.”
