Two things: viewing signatures with smartphone browser and ads

I sort of recall something about not being able to view some things about a person (location, signature, whats in the bag) when using a smartphone browser, is this still the case? Or is there a way i can activate a desktop view with a phone browser?

 

second thing: I’m getting an aggressive popup that I’m fairly certain is a scam, is there a way to block it? Screenshot image attached.

There isn't, because the site is responsive, so it just displays what fits on your screen based on the defined styles.

I'd enable signatures on a mobile device if I could, but with children of the default theme, that's not really possible.

A wider view like you can find on a tablet often displays everything (including signatures).

You can't block it, but I report these URLs to the ad network and they're aggressive about removing them.

They're really frustrating, and I understand that. The best thing you can do is what you did - report it to me, so I can report it to them.

Thank you.

Not sure how to block it (though Google settings detail might work). BUT do NOT respond to that ad. I did, on my phone...It takes you through questions. Next you know, you are having many, many junk calls. Best, -Marv

Yeah, I don’t even hit the x in the upper corner of those popups. If I can’t back out of it I open up the page history and kill the popped-page from there.

One thing to do with these is to just go up to the top and type in “the Sand Trap” and reload the site home page. An Apple forum suggested this as it is supposed to bypass what triggered the pop up.

Thank you. As a mobile phone user the two things I miss over the desktop version is seeing people’s location (when they have it) and seeing their WITB lines.

Helps when looking in the for sale area “, and for when wanting to join an outing or get a round of golf going with one or more others.

    • Weird Science, bogey. This movie is just dumb, and only nostalgia keeps this from being a double or worse. Additionally, the fact that it's like 80 minutes helps. At least it's over quickly.
    • I enjoy posting these and going back through the thread and reading my old thoughts on my round. Also happy I was able to play today even though the temperature was around 42 degrees. The theme of my round was greens. More specifically missed greens. Front wasn’t awful. Hit 5 greens. Hit a SW to tap in range at 9 for a birdie and played the front at +3. I did miss at the 3rd with a gap wedge. Missed at 6 with a 9 iron. Back 9 was a mess. I hit one green. My really bad misses were at 10 with a gap wedge, 12 with a U wedge, 14 and 16 both with SW in hand and to compete the side I dunked a 9 iron in the drink at 18. All I had to do was par the 18th to stay under 80. And I made double for 81. Actually drove the ball well. Funny I shot 2 under a few weeks ago while hitting 3 fairways all day. Today I hit 7 fairways and couldn’t break 80. Hope this isn’t my last round for the year. Like to end on a better day.
    • I had a couple of rounds with one 6. Generally a three-putt by on par 5...even my best round was even par (everything was “on” that day), I had one birdie, one bogey on a par 5, with 16 pars the No-Sixes round is my white whale
    • How close have you gotten? A six on the 18th hole or something?
    • Three years now and still haven’t gotten it yet. One day....
