He laughs. We laugh. Jake Shepherd - the golferiser - is also laughing. He's met DC and been up close with the SLS Roadster, a car he admires greatly. But it's not only DC's jeans that are ‘tight': trying to hit a golf ball into a moving supercar isn't what you'd call a ‘loose fit', but the very definition of ‘ambitious but...'
Back to the golf bats. The cameras roll. DC is back in the Merc, and he guns it. Jake readies his swing and punts the ball. DC weaves and tries to chase. The radio fires back in his inimitable Scottish drawl. "I think that one nearly hit me on the head."
