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
Unable to convert 54-hole lead
February 21, 2021
Burns shot a two-under 69 on Sunday at The Genesis Invitational to finish in solo third place.
ANALYSIS
Burns was looking to go wire-to-wire for his first PGA Tour victory, holding the sole lead after each of the first three rounds. He extended his lead to three after a four-under front-nine, but he stumbled on the back with three bogeys in a four hole stretch to surrender the lead. Needing a birdie on the closing par-4 18th, Burns was unable to chip-in after a poor drive and approach. Nevertheless, he continues to trend in the right direction and has three top-10 results this season.

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 Web.com 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 Web.com 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.
