Enough is a degree modifier. When enough modifies an adjective/adverb, it normally comes after the adjective/adverb.

But note that when enough modifies an adjective and noun together, it comes before the adjective.

Enough + noun

Enough can be used before a noun phrase as a determiner.

Before a pronoun or a noun with a determiner, we use enough of.

Enough of is also used after personal and geographical names.

Enough + infinitive

Enough can be followed by an infinitive.

Infinitives can be introduced by for + noun/pronoun.
