2018–19 Fantasy Outlook
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 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 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. Read Past Outlooks
Rough closing stretch at Bethpage
May 20, 2019
Burns closed with a four-over 74 on Sunday at the PGA Championship to finish five-over and tied for 29th.
Burns fell outside of the top-25 late when he bogeyed six of his final eight holes Sunday, ultimately dropping to just 65th in SG: Approach as well. He gained over five strokes off the tee at Bethpage, however, which somewhat made up for scrambling at a rate of just 38 percent. Burns will now make his second career trip to Colonial CC for the Charles Schwab Challenge, where he missed the cut with a two-day total of 13-over in 2018.
