Byeong-Hun An
27-Year-Old Golfer
2018–19 Fantasy Outlook
An has performed well on the PGA Tour, really since day one. He played 14 events as a non-member in 2016 and won nearly $1 million. As a full-time member the following season, An finished inside the top-100 on the FedEx points list. Last season, his third on the PGA Tour, An upped his game even more, finishing runner-up twice and pulling-in over $2.5 million. An is tremendous from tee to green, ranking in the top-25 in strokes-gained off the tee as well as strokes-gained on approach to the green. He's even pretty good with his short game, but he just can't putt very well. He did show improvement from years two to three, however, and he's so bad at putting currently, that even a slight improvement on the green could result in a big gain in money and FedEx points. The problem is, he set the bar pretty high last season. But An looks like the real deal and he should have enough upside to justify a salary cap selection this season ... if he improves his putting.

Bogey-free Sunday at TPC San Antonio
April 8, 2019
An fired a six-under 66 on Sunday at the Valero Texas Open to finish 12-under and tied for seventh.
An managed to collect six birdies without carding a single bogey during Sunday's final round to card his third sub-70 score of the week, ultimately leading the field in SG: Tee-to-Green. The putter was a major issue for An once again, however, as he lost over six strokes on the greens throughout the event. It's a shame that An just barely missed out on qualifying for the Masters this week, but he could make his next start at the RBC Heritage where he also finished top-10 last year.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
An made a nice jump from more than $900k in his rookie season, to more than $1.2 million last season. An also made the bulk of his money during the 2017 portion of the season, which is always nice. The problem with An is, he hasn't played many events on the PGA Tour. He played just 14 times two seasons ago and only 22 times this past season. An is just 26, so there's plenty of room to improve, but for fantasy purposes, he won't significantly improve until he plays more often. If word comes out that he plans to play more in the states this season, he's in-play as a salary cap candidate, if not, he's not a great option.
The young Korean is a former U.S. Amateur champ and European Tour Rookie of the Year who is only getting better. He is only 25 and will be in all the majors/WGCs, but we just don't know his plans for regular tour events. Keep a close eye. He could be a steal.
