    Not long after being born, Huh moved to Korea where he lived for 12 years. He returned to the United States and went to the University of California Northridge for a mere two weeks before turning pro. This decision was made as Huh was not eligible to participate in NCAA competitions and was not able to receive a scholarship due to restrictions. In his first few years as pro, Huh played mainly on the Korean Tour. He was the Rookie of the Year in 2010 and won his first pro event that season at the Shinhan Donghae Open. He attended Q School at the end of 2011 and successfully won his first ever PGA Tour card after just scraping into the positions eligible for cards.

    Huh was named Rookie of the Year for his first season on the PGA Tour. Huh had an amazing start to the season. He finished in a tie for 6th in his second event and duly won his first Tour title in his 6th event, at the Mayakoba Golf Classic. The victory came after an eight hole play-off with Australian Robert Allenby. He would go on to finish runner-up at the Valero Texas Open a couple of months later. Huh finished his rookie season 28th on the money list.

    Huh only managed two top 10s the following season with his best result coming at the Wyndham Championship where he finished in a tie for 3rd place. He played in the Masters for the very first time and finished a very respectable tied 11th. He also managed a good finish at the US Open when he finished in a tie for 17th place. Huh would finish his second season in 58th position in the standings. The 2014 season brought two 3rd place finishes for Huh, at the RBC Heritage and the Barracuda Championship.
