Anthony Kim spent his early childhood in his hometown, Los Angeles. Later, he relocated to La Quinta, California, where he studied at La Quinta High School. Upon matriculation, he enrolled at the the University of Oklahoma; however, he decided to quit education and began pursuing his professional career, but while he was there, Kim met his future caddie Brodie Flanders, and as he distinguished himself as a golfer, he became a member of the USA team, which won the 2005 Walker Cup for amateurs.
Subsequently, to begin his career as a golfer, Kim turned professional in 2006, when he competed at the Valero Texas Open as a member of the PGA Tour. Thanks to his great performances during his rookie season, in the following year he broke into the top 100 in the Official World Golf Rankings.
