Anthony Kang (born November 30, 1972) is a Korean-American professional golfer.

Kang was born in South Korea, moving to live in the United States at the age of 10, where he attended Oregon State University.

Kang turned professional in 1996. He has been a member of the Asian Tour since 1998 where he has won over a million US dollars in prize money.

Kang has had three victories on the Asian Tour, the most recent coming at the 2009 Maybank Malaysian Open, eight years after the previous one. The tournament was co-sanctioned with the European Tour, and the win also gave him a two year exemption on that tour.
