FanDuel daily fantasy golf players were both confused and angry late on Friday and early Saturday when they realized FanDuel had paid out for their 2017 RBC Canadian Open contests after the completion of the second round of this week’s PGA Tour event.
Players noticed quickly that payouts had been made just halfway through the four-round event which ends Sunday at Glen Abbey Golf Club. Many of these players, who had a slate of eight players make the 36-hole cut, took to Twitter to implore FanDuel for some kind of explanation or resolution to the issue.
On Saturday morning, FanDuel laid blame at some kind of technical issue (maybe someone set the wrong end date for the contests) and said they were investigating.
We are currently investigating a technical issue with our PGA contests, we will update as soon as we have more information.

Meanwhile, players indicated that money they had been paid had already been withdrawn from their accounts. It appears the FanDuel golf contests will continue to the tournament’s conclusion as though nothing happened under standard FanDuel fantasy golf rules.
