Eisenhower’s Tyler Hardtarfer – Athlete Spotlight Presented Advanced Physical Therapy

By Matt Browning

In the rain-shortened 5A golf tournament last season, Eisenhower’s Tyler Hardtarfer shot 78 and finished in a tie for 17th. The Tigers took second as a team, nine shots behind Kapaun Mount Carmel.

Not bad, right?

Not for Hardtarfer, who has big plans for his 2023 campaign.

“I want to finish top five in the state and would love to finish first at one of our invitationals,” Hardtarfer said. “I would like to improve our second place finish at state last year to first place this year.”

With John Loomis taking over the program, Hardtarfer is interested to see what that does for him and the Tigers’ chances this season.

“I am excited to see how are team comes together under are new coach,” Hardtarfer said. “I am excited to see the results of my hard work and dedication reflected in my performance. Ultimately I want to see my teammates excel on and off the course.”

Saving shots with his short game was the key area Hardtarfer focused on throughout the offseason.

“This season I want to improve putting in particular,” he said “I have been playing, practicing and doing drills nearly every day to sharpen my putting.”

After he graduates, Hardtarfer plans on continuing his golf career in college and plans on majoring in business or finance.
