THE MODERATOR: We’d like to welcome you to the 2011 Solheim Cup at Killeen Castle. Thanks everyone for joining us for the first interview of the week. We have, in her third appearance on the U.S. Team, in the middle, Christina Kim. She has a 5‑2‑1 overall record in the competition.

At the end, Angela Stanford, making her fourth appearance, a 3‑4‑3 overall record and 2‑1 in singles play, And to my left, Michelle Wie, making her second appearance following her rookie campaign in 2009. She’s 3‑0‑1 all time.

We’d like to start with you, Angela. Your fourth appearance on the team, just talk about what it means to be on the U.S. Solheim Cup team?

ANGELA STANFORD: Well, I tell everybody that my dream is to make Solheim Cup teams. Dreams and goals. I’ve been excited since we hit the ground here, and I just think it’s an honor to be a part of this team. It’s an honor to be here. To get to play with a group of ladies you spend two years playing against, it’s kind of fun to pull for each other and play with each other.

I love it. It’s my favorite event, and it’s pretty weird that this is my fourth one so very happy to be here.

THE MODERATOR: Christina, your third appearance. You’re known for really pumping the crowds up out there. Do you have anything special in store this week?
CHRISTINA KIM: This is my first appearance here overseas. It’s an absolute thrill and honor to be here. Thankfully, it’s my third trip here to Ireland. I love the Irish people. Everyone’s been fantastic to me the last two times I’ve been at the AIB Ladies Irish Open.

You know, I don’t really have anything that I do other than celebrate the game. For me, it’s about celebrating that perfect shot, because I’ll probably just as shocked if the putt goes in as everyone out there will be.

THE MODERATOR: Your second appearance, in 2009, you scored three and a half points for the U.S. Team. What does that mean to you and what does it mean to be back here on another U.S. Solheim Cup team?
MICHELLE WIE: It’s the greatest honor to be able to represent your country and to represent your teammates out there. I was so happy when I did well in my first Solheim. It was a really, truly, amazing experience for me. I never felt so much support from my teammates before. It was my first time, and I think my second time being over in Europe.
So far the trip has been great, and I’m really looking forward to playing with these girls an
