A score less than par (in this case 72) is represented with a negative number while a score above par is represented with a positive number. The scores above would then be scored as 3,+1, 2 and +2. The team score is then 3 + 1 +(2) + 2 = 2 on the first round. On the second round they scored 3 less or 2  3 = 5.
