Getting To Know Anthony Kim How did you spend your summer? I participated in Cadet Leadership Development Training and then spent six weeks in Los Angeles on leave. Then I had three weeks of Advanced Individual Academic Development. I chose West Point because? I've always wanted to come here and heard great things about it. I also thought the prospect of becoming an officer in the United States Army was cool. What makes Army golf so special? Because it's not a big team, we get to know each other really well. Also unlike other teams, we go through training together so that brings us even closer. Before every round I? Listen to music and play games that require hand eye coordination. The longest drive I ever hit was? Classic Club, 18th hole, I hit it 435. Yes it was downwind and downhill. If I could play only one club it would be? West Point Golf Course or Trump National in Palos Verdes, Calif. I chose my major because? (Officer Representative) Col. Rob Kewley sold me on it. No joke. My dream foursome includes? Ferruccio Lamborghini, Enzo Ferrari, and Warren Buffet I am most looking forward to playing? Every tournament this year and every great venue. Favorite course to play on the Simulator? Pinehurst #2 In 20 years I will be? Hopefully living in Newport Beach, Calif., and driving a Lamborghini.
