Wong came to Nebraska with experience playing at Hamilton High School in Chandler, Ariz. He won the 2011 Antigua National High School Golf Invitational, while also leading Hamilton to the team championship. Wong, and his brother Nathan, also led Hamilton to back-to-back state championships under Coach Steve Kanner in 2008 and 2009. Additionally, Aaron edged out his brother by three shots to win the 2011 PING Junior Classic.

Wong competed on the Junior Golf Association of Arizona Tour, along with the Future Collegians World Tour. He tied for seventh at the 2011 State Junior Golf Championship in Arizona and tied for third at two events in 2010 - the Omni Tucson National 54-hole Event and the Antiqua/Milt Coggins Arizona Junior Stroke Play. Wong was also a letterwinner in track and field at Hamilton.
