In the 2019-2020PGA Tour season, Burns began to establish himself as one of the rising stars on the PGA Tour. He finished in the top 10 four times and earned his first PGA Tour win at the 2020 Valspar Championship, where he held off a late charge from Dustin Johnson to win by one stroke. Burns finished the season ranked 24th in the FedEx Cup standings.

Overall, Burns is known for his solid all-around game, particularly his putting and short game. He is also a long hitter off the tee and has a reputation as a hard worker who is dedicated to improving his game.
