2019–20 Fantasy Outlook
An performed well during his rookie season of 2017, as he carded three top-10s and over $1 million in earnings. An's sophomore season was much better as he finished runner-up on two occasions and topped $2.5 million in earnings. This past season, An's third was decent, but he certainly didn't build upon his success from the previous season. An looks like the real deal though and his slight set back last season puts him in a good spot for a bounce-back this season. Read Past Outlooks
Unable to hang with leaders Sunday
August 2, 2020
An fell into a tie for 12th place after a three-over 73 in the final round of the WGC-FedEx St. Jude Invitational.
An looked great the first three rounds other than a triple-bogey on Thursday and a double-bogey on Saturday. At 11-under-par he was just one behind the 54-hole lead held by Brendan Todd. Both An and Todd looked uncomfortable with their position, while some players in groups in front were a lot more on the attack. An ranked T17 in SG: Putting and 22nd in SG: Tee-to-green at TPC Southwind. The Korean had three missed cuts to go along with a T60 and T46 since the restart, so you'd think he won't be all that disappointed with a solid top-15. An will look for another good showing at the PGA Championship next week.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
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.
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.
