La'Cassie was born in Brisbane, Australia. During his adolescent years Bronson played for the Queensland State Team, which finished second in 2000, as well as playing for the Australian Honorary School Team. He graduated from Kelvin Grove State High School in 1999, earning both his higher and lower school certificates.[1]

In 2003 La'Cassie began his freshman year at the University of Minnesota, after being noticed for his considerable golf skills. He was named the fourth "Big Ten Freshman" of the school. During his 2005–2006 junior season he was awarded the Les Bolstad award for lowest scoring average in the Big Ten, being the fourth Gopher to ever win the award. In 2006 he won the Western Amateur, a leading annual amateur event, after defeating Oklahoma State's Pablo Martín, 2 and 1.[1]

La'Cassie currently holds an Australian higher and lower school certificate, as well as a major in business and marketing which he earned while at the University of Minnesota. He attributes his most memorable sports thrill to playing in the Australian Open.[1]
