Born in Shreveport, Louisiana, Sam Burns is an American professional golfer who played his first season on the PGA Tour in 2019.

Recording his maiden PGA Tour victory at the Valspar Championship in 2021, Sam won by 3 strokes and finished on 17 under par. His second PGA title followed in the same year at the Country Club of Jackson when he won the Sanderson Farms Championship.

Sam started his 2021 season strongly, finishing 3rd at the Genesis Invitational and tying the 36-hole record scoring 64-66. He followed this up with two T7 finishes at the Safeway Open and Vivint Houston Open respectively. He made the FedExCup Playoffs for the third season in a row and proceeded to play in the TOUR Championship for the first time, ending the season in the FedExCup standings at 18th.

The 2020 season was a successful one for Sam too, featuring five top-25s. His best finishes came at The American Express (T6), where he also recorded his career-low round of 63, the Wyndham Championship (T13), and the Workday Charity Open (T17). He ended in 111th place in the 2020 FedExCup.

During his first season on the PGA Tour, Sam carded his first top-5 finish with a T3 at the Sanderson Farms Championship, carding 15-under. His first professional victory came in the 2018 Savannah Golf Championships on the Korn Ferry Tour - only his fifth start of his rookie season.

Sam was a member of the victorious 2017 Arnold Palmer Cup team, representing the US. He finished T6 in the PGA Tour's 2017 Barbasol Championship, competing as an amateur.

Representing the Louisiana State University golf team, Sam notched up four victories in 15 collegiate outings. He was named the Jack Nicklaus National Player of the Year (NCAA Division). He was also individual state champion three times and was named AJGA Rolex Junior Player of the Year in 2014.
