With three of the four remaining teams on the verge of elimination, Jameica Duncombe had difficulty at the par-3 challenge at Trump International Golf Club on Tuesday’s Highway 18. Jameica Duncombe and partner Raul Cendoya crossed the finish line in last place, becoming the second team eliminated from the series.
Tuesday’s episode began on the shores of Lake Okeechobee, where teams participated in a chipping challenge and then raced in airboats to their vehicles before advancing to Donald Trump’s ultra-exclusive Mar-a-Lago Club for the Road Challenge.
At Mar-a-Lago, teams played “Croquet Golf,” with departure times adjusted based on the length of time it took each team to finish the challenge.
Davis and Korzack, arriving at Mar-a-Lago Club in last place, made up time at the Road and Clubhouse Challenges and crossed the finish line first, giving the Torontoteam a boost of confidence.
Jay and Peach Reynolds led the first two challenges of the episode. Their lead quicklydisappeared when they got lost going to Trump International, arriving for the final challenge in third place. They made up time on the course, finishing in second just behind Davis and Korzack.
Rob and Charlotte Campbell, theonly team without a strike in the series, again had luck on their side. The brother-sister team arrived to the final challenge at Trump International in last place. After struggling on the course, theythought they were in for their first strike. However, they saw Cendoya and Duncombe behind them when they arrived at the clubhouse. After they crossed the finish and avoided their first strike, Charlotte Campbell broke down with emotion.
Cendoya and Duncombe arrived to the final challenge of the episode at Trump International in first place. The challenge required each team to play one of four holes with the same yardage – 190 yards for the men, 167 yards for the women – in a combined score of par-or-better before racing to the finish line. Cendoya and Duncombe selected to play the 18th hole, closest to the clubhouse.
While Cendoya made par on his first attempt, Duncombe struggled. She found the water hazard in her first two attempts and missed a six-foot par putt on her third try. She made a birdie on her fourth attempt, but it was too little, too late.
Highway 18 is a double-elimination series, with teams finishing last in two episodes going home. Heading into next week’s episode, three teams remain: Jay and Peach Reynolds and Ashleigh Korzack and Ashley Davis eachwith one strike, while Rob and Charlotte Campbell remain the only team with no strikes.
