Probst ends the conversation to explain today's challenge. It's golf except that instead of clubs, the teams are using slingshots. There are three holes total, and the first tribe to win two of them wins the reward, which is a trip to a Gabonese village to watch dancing and eat and sleep. And they get to send someone from the losing tribe to Exile "Island." With that, Fang sits Corinne out for the challenge. Funny how Corinne sits out most challenges, and yet, somehow, she apparently "deserves" to be there, as according to the Corinne Entitlement Criteria (CEC), which is based on one's usefulness at giving Corinne what she wants.
Kota goes first, with Bob using his physics skillz to shoot the ball a decent distance into what looks like a bunch of mushrooms or small rock formations. Matty shoots for Fang, and the ball lands in a for-decorative-purposes-only hazard. Kota's second shot gets pretty close to the hole, thanks to a good bounce. Fang's shot goes in the wrong direction but somehow ends up pretty close to the hole as well. Randy takes Fang's third shot, and it's very short and doesn't help Fang much at all. You suck, Randy. Ken takes the shot for Kota, and he puts it in the hole. Hooray! Crystal is so happy to actually not suck at something, and hugs Ken while he does a little geek accomplishment dance.
For the next hole, Kota and Fang's drives are both pretty good. Fang's second shot gets really close to the hole, making it an easy putt. Kota's shot lands close, but not as close as Fang's. Ken takes the third shot for Kota, but does not make it in the hole. That means Matty's got an easy third shot for the win, but hesitates before taking it, yelling at Charlie to stand a certain way. Charlie protests, but Matty snaps at him and Charlie relents. Despite the tense moment, Matty makes it in the hole, tying the game up and giving Charlie a reason to hug him. By the way, I love how Sugar has spent this entire game standing near her team, but doing absolutely nothing. Such participation!
So now it's time for the third and final hole. Both teams drive well, and Fang's second shot gets a nice roll close to the hole. Kota's second shot gets close to the hole, but not close enough to almost guarantee they'll make the third shot.
