  1. 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.
