Enhancements to Golfers and Search Pages

We have enhanced the 'Golfers' page in the member section of Golf Predictor ('View Options' menu). As shown in the first screenshot above, the following changes have been made:
  1. The golfer names are now hyperlinked. Hovering over one will show some extra information, while clicking it will open the new 'Golfer Details' page (see below).
  2. We now display the number of tournaments that each golfer has played since 2003 in a sortable column.
  3. We have added 2 new charts to the page. One shows the most common nationalities among the golfers and the other shows those who have played the most tournaments since 2003. Rather unsurprisingly, Americans have by far the biggest number of professionals. Rather surprisingly, Vijay Singh is not in the top 20 in the most tournaments played chart!
  4. We display the total number of golfers in the system, both on the main golfer page and the new chart pages.
These 2 new charts, accessible to all members, bring the total number of charts in Golf Predictor to 129. The second screenshot above shows the new 'Golfer Details' page, accessed by clicking on a golfer name on the revamped golfers page. This page shows the basic golfer information and all the tournament results for that golfer since 2003. As usual, hovering over a tournament name will show some extra information, while clicking it will display the full information on the 'Results' page for that golfer/tournament.

In addition, the Golf Predictor search page has been updated to include similar functionality for the results of player searches. The number of matching results for each search (tournament/golfer/course) is now also displayed for your convenience. We hope you find these new enhancements useful.
