Michael Kim

Under the guidance of his father, Kim started playing golf at age 8. His Torrey Pines High School team won the state title in his senior season and the Southern California crown in his final three years in high school.
In his first two seasons at the University of California, he was one of the nation's leading golfers in both the collegiate and amateur ranks. As a sophomore in 2012-13, he was Pac-12 Player of the Year, named first-team All-American, and became Cal's first National Player of the Year in four different selection processes.
In 2012, he won the Isleworth Collegiate Championship. He had a one-shot lead going into the final round but ended up in a fairway bunker, made the shot onto the green, and had a two-putt to win. Kim cites this experience as his most memorable in golf. Finished runner-up at the 2012 Gopher Invitational.
Competed in the 2012 U.S. Amateur Public Links and made it to the round of 16 in match play. He also played at the 2011 U.S. Amateur and finished T32nd. He also competed in 2010 but did not make the cut.
He was named the 2013 Jack Nicklaus Award winner as the top collegiate player of the year. Won the Fred Haskins Award for college golf excellence the same year. He was low amateur at the 2013 U.S. Open at Merion, being as high as T-3rd through 15 holes of the third round. Eventually finished T-17th. Represented the U.S. on the Palmer Cup as well as the Walker Cup at The National Golf Links. At the end of 2014, played the Korn Ferry Tour Qualifying Tournament as an amateur (was still enrolled at Cal and competing on the golf team). Opened strong with 68-69-66 before three disappointing final rounds of 70-74-75 to finish T-56th. Had the option to activate his membership at any time during the 2014 season, provided he declared his professional intentions. Two days after Q-School, he announced he had turned professional.
