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.

Unable to hang onto 54-hole lead
August 4, 2019
An closed with a three-under 67 in the final round of the Wyndham Championship to settle for a third place finish.
An held a one stroke lead entering the final round. His biggest competition for most of the day was the surging J.T. Poston who ultimately ended up shooting a 62. The turning point was when An made a bogey and the par-5 15th hole, the easiest hole on the course. To his credit, he was able to bounce back with a birdie on 16, which forced him to play the final two holes in one-under to get into a playoff. After a par on 17, An had a long birdie putt on 18 which he blasted by and missed the comebacker, dropping him into third place. It will be tough to swallow knowing his only two bogeys of the entire week came in the last four holes of the championship. An has to be encouraged about his game, however, ranking top-three in SG: Approach, SG: Around, SG: Tee-to-green, scrambling, and GIR's at Sedgefield. He will enter the playoffs 57th in the standings.

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.
