As the European Tour landed back in mainland Europe, it's been a mixed bag as far as the weather has been concerned - pouring rain earlier in the week, brightening up, before giving way to rain and high winds again on the first and second days of the tournament.
And when you add very fast greens, thick rough, soft fairways and a lot of water to the weather conditions, scoring is sure to be at a premium.
The Real Golf Club de Sevilla is a par 72, measuring 7,134 yards, opened in 1992 and designed by Pro V1x loyalist and European Ryder Cup Captain José Maria Olazábal.
At the time of writing, the cut is projected for +5, testament to the tough conditions. But Titleist ambassador Gregory Bourdy seems to have got a handle on conditions on the second day, carding a 66 to move to -5 and the solo lead. Fellow ambassador Matteo Manassero is in a share for second one shot back, with Titleist ball loyalists Robert Rock, Marcel Siem and Gary Orr right in the mix as well! It's sure to make interesting viewing over the weekend!
