Will play in his fifth U.S. Open by qualifying for the season-ending Tour Championship. Burns, who now owns six PGA Tour titles, broke through for his first PGA Tour win in May 2021 at the Valspar Championship, edging Keegan Bradley by three strokes, and then successfully defended his title by edghing two-time U.S. Junior Amateur runner-up Davis Riley in a playoff. In March, he defeated Cameron Young, 6 and 5, in the 18-hole final of the WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play at Austin (Texas) Country Club. Burns rallied from seven strokes back to win the 2022 Charles Schwab Challenge in a playoff over world No. 1 and close friend Scottie Scheffler. Burns carded a final-round 65 and then holed a long putt from the fringe on the first playoff hole. The former Louisiana State University All-American registered his first professional victory at the 2018 Savannah (Ga.) Golf Championship on the Web.com Tour (now Korn Ferry Tour). He turned professional in 2017 after a stellar amateur career that included four collegiate victories, including the 2017 NCAA Baton Rouge Invitational. He represented the USA on the 2017 Palmer Cup Team and later that summer tied for sixth in the PGA Tour's Barbasol Championship as an amateur. He also represented his country in the 2014 Junior Ryder Cup. Last fall he was a member of the victorious U.S. Presidents Cup Team.
