Semifinalist at the both the U.S. Junior Amateur and the U.S. Amateur Public Links in 2004.
Kang turned professional in 2007 and joined the Korean Tour in his home country. He first gained international recognition in 2009 when he finished runner-up to Thongchai Jaidee at the 2009 Ballantine's Championship, a tournament co-sanctioned by the Korean Tour and the European Tour. The following year, Kang won for the first time on the Korean Tour, at the Eugene Open, and ended the 2010 season by finishing T-16th and qualifying for the PGA Tour at Q-School. In 2011, started playing the PGA Tour and then got into the BMW Charity on the Web.com Tour and was runner-up, losing a playoff to Garth Mulroy. Played both the PGA Tour and Korn Ferry Tour in 2011 and '12, struggled, and lost his cards. Came close to saving it in 2011 on the last event of the year, the Children's Miracle, when he finished T-3rd, three strokes behind winner Luke Donald, for his best result on the PGA Tour.
Has been runner-up three times on the Korn Ferry Tour: the 2011 BMW Charity, 2014 Utah Championship, and the next year lost a playoff to Patton Kizzire at the Utah Championship. Closed the 2015 season with two missed cuts and a T-34th, but wrapped up his 2015-16 PGA Tour card by finishing 22nd on the money list. In the Korn Ferry Tour Finals, opened with a T-37th at the Hotel Fitness Championship, skipped the Small Business Connection Championship at River Run, was T-61st at the Nationwide Children's Hospital Championship and 65th at the Korn Ferry Tour Championship.
2016 Notes: Played in 29 PGA Tour events, making 16 cuts with two top-10s. A week after shooting 60 at Monterey Peninsula CC during the second round of the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am (finished T-17th), he carded a 6-under 65 to qualify for the Northern Trust Open and finished T-8th with Mike "Fluff" Cowan as his caddie. Following his performance at the Northern Trust Open, finished T-10th at The Honda Classic, marking the first time in his career he recorded back-to-back top-10s. Advanced to the FedExCup playoffs for the first time in his career, ending the Wyndham Championship at 122nd in the FedExCup standings. A T-18th at The Barclays elevated him to No. 88, but a missed cut at the Deutsche Bank Championship ended his season, ranked 96th in the final standings.
2017 Notes: Played in 32 events on the PGA Tour and made the cut in 20 of them. The year began slowly. In his first 14 events, he only made six cuts.
Entered the final round of the Shell Houston Open leading Rickie Fowler by three, his first-ever 54-hole lead on the PGA Tour. Finished alone in 2nd after an even-par 72 in the final round. The runner-up finish was his first on the PGA Tour. A month later when the tour was back in Texas for the Valero Texas Open, he finished T-6th. Got off to another fast start at the Quicken Loans National with rounds of 66-69, but 71-70 dropped him back to a T-5th, three strokes out of the playoff, but with a spot in the British Open, where he finished T-44th. For the first time in his PGA Tour career, advanced to the third FedExCup playoffs event, finishing T-53rd at the BMW Championship and a career-best 59th in the FedExCup. Ended the year with a T-2nd at the Hyundai Insurance KJ Choi Invitational on the Korean Tour.
2018 Notes: Played in 29 PGA Tour events, making 16 cuts with two top-10 finishes. Was T-3rd at the CIMB Classic.

Won for the first time at the AT&T Byron Nelson. Opened up with rounds of 65-61, and he was able to adjust to the poor weather over the weekend to shoot 68-67 and hold on for a two stroke victory over Scott Piercy and Matt Every.
