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
Notches top-25 result in CT
June 29, 2020
Burns closed with a three-under 67 on Sunday at the Travelers Championship to finish 11-under and tied for 24th.
Burns gained strokes off the tee in all four rounds at TPC River Highlands to rack up 21 total birdies despite ranking just 49th in SG: Putting and 54th in putts per GIR. He's now made the cut in four of five starts dating back to the Genesis Open, and Burns will tee it up again this week at the Rocket Mortgage Classic where he tied for 42nd in 2019.

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.
