Cover Hardness is a measurement of how much the golf ball’s surface indents when a constant load is applied to it. It is an indication of how a golf ball feels around the green. The lower the rating the more the ball indents and feels softer, the higher the rating the less the ball indents and feels firmer.
Manufacturers often address the hardness of the various layers within a multilayer golf ball construction and design.
Our testing at GolfBallTest.org addresses the golf ball’s surface hardness. We utilize a TECLOCK Type C hardness tester to conduct our hardness test. Learn more on our golf ball performance testing methods at www.GolfBallSelector.com.
