23-Year-Old Golfer
2019–20 Fantasy Outlook
Burns had a solid, yet not quite spectacular rookie season on the PGA Tour this past year. He earned over $1 million, carded six top-10s and most importantly, secured his card for the upcoming season. His best finish came in the fall however and while he did post six top-10s, he was more of a hit or miss type of guy last season. There could be something there, but it's too early too tell. It's probably best to pass on Burns this season in salary cap formats. Read Past Outlooks
Turning around season
April 4, 2020
Burns has competed in 11 events in the 2019-20 season and is currently sitting 120th on the PGA Tour Money List with $404,304 in earnings.
After a rough start to the season, Burns has turned it around as of late. He missed 4-of-5 cuts to start the season, but he has made five of his last six. His best finish was a T6 at The American Express. He has been excellent off-the-tee and with this flat stick, as he ranks 32nd and 22nd respectively in strokes gained in those categories. However, the 23-year-old is ranked just 186th in SG: Approach-The-Green and 226th in SG: Around-The-Green.

2018 Fantasy Outlook
The LSU product was named a first-team All-American and recipient of the Jack Nicklaus Player of the Year award as the NCAA's top golfer during the 2016-17 season. He not only won on the Tour as a rookie in 2018, but also appeared in 11 PGA Tour events including a top-10 at the Honda Classic. Burns led the Tour in both birdie average and putting average, so he'll be a candidate to make some noise with a full schedule at the next level.
