While waiting for the POTG 2015 European Tour set to be released I'll be playing the POTG Golf 2015 Continental Cup series of strokeplay events. Six teams, by continent, of four golfers, will compete over 72 Holes on various courses.

Points awared as follows: Each team will earn points based on it's cumulative score for each round, as well as it's cumulative 72 Hole total. The lowest team total will receive 6 points, graduating down to the highest team total receiving 1 point. This equates to a maximum of 30 points (6 x 5), and minimum of 5 points (1 x 5), possible at each course.

Teams

Africa

Tim Clark
Brendon de Jonge
Louis Oosthuizen
Charl Schwartzel


Asia

Sangmoon Bae
Ryo Ishikawa
Hideki Matsuyama
Seung-yul Noh


Australia

Steven Bowditch
Jason Day
Marc Leishman
Adam Scott


Europe

Sergio Garcia
Rory McIlroy

Henrik Stenson


North America

Graham DeLaet
Carlos Ortiz
Jordan Spieth
Bubba Watson


South America

Angel Cabrera

Course 1 - Augusta National (72)

Day 1

Augusta was playing very tough as only two of the participants could break 70, Justin Rose (68) and Jason Day (69). Ten of the scores were over par (72), with Angel Cabrera (76) carding the highest total of the day. Europe (281) took the 6 points, while South America (293), with 3 scores over par, took the single point.

Day 4

Once again 8 scores broke 70, but this time 2 teams, Africa and South America, did not have anyone in the 60s. The low score of the day, 68, was reached 4 times, Marc Leishman and Steven Bowditch of Australia, Henrik Stenson of Europe, and Bubba Watson of North America. The high score again was 74, found on 2 scorecards, Tim Clark of Africa and Carlos Ortiz of North America. Europe (277) took the 6 points for the 2nd time, while Africa (290) received the single point.

The low 4 Round total was Bubba Watson, coming in at 11 under par with a 277. Angel Cabrera of South America had the highest 4 Round total, a 9 over par score of 297.

Europe took the 6 points for lowest team total, scoring a collective 24 under par. For the 3rd time South America received just 1 point, a result of their team high total of 13 over par.

Course 2 - TPC Sawgrass (72)

Day 1

A very close day as only 8 strokes separated the top and bottom teams. 5 of those strokes separated Africa (280) from the rest of the field as they took the 6 points. That left only 3 strokes to separate the remaining teams, with Australia (285) and Europe (285) each taking 5 points, North America (287) and South America (287) taking 3 each, and Asia (288) settling for the single point.

Only 3 scores were in the 60s, with Graham DeLaet (67) of North America posting the low round of the day. Highest score of the round was shared by Hideki Matsuyama (76) of Asia and Bubba Watson (76) of North America.

I see Graham DeLaet's putter apparently didn't let him down in your replay like it did this weekend at the Valspar!

The current thinking seems to favor the long hitters, but I've always like the old adage that says, drive for show and putt for dough Smile

Course 2 - TPC Sawgrass (72)

Day 2

A different scoring day compared to Round 1 as 16 strokes separated the top from the bottom. Australia (278) took the 6 points, while South America (294) found themselves in a familiar position as they were able to garner only a single point.

Only 3 teams had any sub 70 scores, with Australia notching 2 Rounds in the 60s. Jason Day (69) and Graham DaLaet (69) both broke 70 for the second day in a row. Lowest round of the day was shared by Steven Bowditch (68) and Henrik Stenson (68). The high score was carded by Carlos Ortiz (80) of North Amercia, courtesy of a disastrous roll on the BD Chart.

Course 2 - TPC Sawgrass (72)

Day 3

A very good scoring day as evidenced by both the individual, and team scores. The real story however was that only 5 strokes separated 6 points from 1. North Amercia (275) took the 6 points, helped by three scores of 68. Australia (280), despite a collective score of 8 under, only 2 strokes higher than Day 2 when they took 6 points, had to settle for the bottom of the ladder's single point.

Exactly half of the scores were in the 60s, with each team recording at least one. Graham DeLaet (68) and Jason Day (69) recorded sub 70 rounds for the third day in a row. Justin Rose (66) carded the lowest score of the day while the high score was only 1 over par, Marc Leishman (73) and Henrik Stenson (73).

Course 2 - TPC Sawgrass (72)

Day 4

The final day of competition at TPC Sawgrass was even closer than the day before as there were only 4 strokes between the top and bottom scoring teams. North America (285) and Europe (285) each took 6 points, while for the second day in a row Australia (289) finished at the bottom and took just a single point.

Only 3 scores made it into the 60s and each of those scores were the low round of the day, Oosthuizen (69), Ishikawa (69), and Spieth (69). Jason Day (72) and Graham DeLaet (71) both had their string of consectutive sub 70 rounds snapped. Marc Leishman (75) and Carlos Ortiz (75) carded the high scores of the day. North America once again had the low individual 4 Round total as Graham DeLaet (275) came in at 13 under par.

With a total team score of 24 under par Africa took the 6 points for low team total, edging Europe by just a single stroke. South Amercia, once again in an all too familiar spot, took only a single point for their total team score.

As they did at Augusta, Europe once again claimed the most points as their total of 25 squeaked by Africa and their 24 points. Europe, with 52 points, has a 10 point lead over second place North America.

Next course, Chambers Bay.

Course 3 - Chambers Bay (70)

Day 1

Brutal. That's the only way to describe the Course Card for the 2015 US Open at Chambers Bay. Par will have to be considered a good day. Under par ? Either luck, a gift, or a lot of both.

The course was the star in Round 1 as only a single stroke separated the top 5 teams. When a team score of 8 over par is good enough for 6 points it's clear that the faint of heart should be watching, not playing. Europe (288) found themselves in a familiar spot at the top of the scoring but they had some unexpected company in taking the 6 points as South Amercia (288) reached previously unknown heights in also finishing at the top when the day was over. Africa (289), Australia (289), and North Amercia (289) each finished just 1 stroke off the pace but that stroke cost each team 2 points as they had to settle for 4. Asia (302) finished at the bottom and took only a single point.

Rounds in the 60s, none. Low score of the day was par, reached only by Charl Schwartzel (70) and Justin Rose (70). The high score was carded by Seung-yul Noh (85) as he had a disastrous day, rolling the worst possible combination on the course's BD Chart.

Course 3 - Chambers Bay (70)

Day 2

The scoring was very similar to Day 1 but not quite as close as 6 strokes separated the top from the bottom. North America (287) took 6 points, with Australia (293) and South America (293) finishing at the bottom and receiving 2 points each.

As in Day 1 there were no rounds in the 60s. Also as in Day 1 the low score was par, this time being recorded by only one participant, Bubba Watson (70). High score was 5 over, carded by Charl Schwartzel (75), who tied for low round on Day 1, Marc Leishman (75), and Angel Cabrera (75).

Course 3 - Chambers Bay (70)

Day 3

The overall scoring was very similar to the first two days but one team did break par, as did 5 players, spread over 4 teams. Europe (277) was the only team to score under par, finishing 12 strokes ahead of Africa and taking the 6 points with the help of 2 individual sub 70 scores. South America (303) finished at the bottom and claimed a single point.

European team members carded the 2 lowest individual rounds of the day, Rory McIlroy (67) and Justin Rose (68). Jordan Spieth (83) recorded the high score of the day as he rolled on the course's BD chart, getting the worst possible combination.

With an 11 stroke lead going into Day 4, Europe will be tough to catch for the lowest 72 hole team score.
