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
Ties for ninth at WMPO
February 4, 2020
An closed with a one-over 72 on Sunday at the Waste Management Phoenix Open to finish 11-under and tied for ninth.
ANALYSIS
An tallied 11 birdies to zero bogeys throughout his first 36 holes of the week, but he ultimately fell to 54th in putts per GIR and 56th in SG: Putting as he ran out of steam with the flat stick by tournament's end. He now owns four top-10 finishes through 10 starts to begin the season, ascending to 24th in the early FedEx Cup standings. An won't be in the field for this week's AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am, however.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2018
2017
2016
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.
