Chart Display on Data Pages Enhanced

Rory McIlroy's 2011 results ahead of the WGC - HSBC Champions event
The three data pages with charts on Golf Predictor have been updated to increase usability. These three pages are the main 'Prediction Data' page for each golfer participating in a tournament, the 'Season Statistics' page for each golfer for a given season (minimum of five events played) and the 'Tournament Details' page for each tournament in the system. As shown above in the image of the chart for Rory McIlroy's 2011 results ahead of the WGC - HSBC Champions event, the charts now open in a pop-up modal box. Previously, these charts opened on a separate web page which made navigating to the different charts available on the data page somewhat cumbersome. Now, the underlying page stays in the browser window, but is greyed out when a chart is displayed.

I believe this is a significant improvement, but I await user feedback with interest. Note that the charts on the other pages (generally pages with tables of players/courses/tournaments directly accessible from a menu) still open up in a separate web page. Depending on reaction, I may update these charts also to work in a similar manner. Just another way to make Golf Predictor even better!
