Calling Bryson DeChambeau’s equipment setup unique would be an understatement. From using a driver designed for the World Long Drive to single-length, 3D-printed irons, DeChambeau is using clubs no other player in professional golf is trying, at least not yet.

While his golf balls may be from Titleist, the Titleist Pro V1x Left Dash, specifically, he’s using them, again, like no one else in professional golf.

To reveal any manufacturing defects and test the “out-of-balanceness” of his golf balls, DeChambeau floats them in a bucket of water mixed with Epsom salt.

Here’s how DeChambeau explained the process Saturday night.

“I put my golf balls in Epsom salt,” he said. “I’m lucky enough that Connor, my manager, does that now. I don’t have to do it. But essentially we float golf balls in a solution to make sure that the golf ball is not out of balance. There was a big thing back in the day where golf balls are out of balance, and it’s just because of the manufacturing process. There’s always going to be an error, especially when it’s a sphere and there’s dimples on the edges. You can’t perfectly get it in the center.

“So what I’m doing is finding pretty much the out-of-balanceness of it, how much out of balance it is. Heavy slide floats to the bottom, and then we mark the top with a dot to make sure it’s always rolling over itself. It kind of acts like mud. If there’s too much weight on one side, you can put it 90 degrees to where the mud is on the right-hand side or the mud is on the left-hand side. I’m using mud as a reference for the weight over there. It’ll fly differently and fly inconsistently.

“For most golf balls that we get, it’s not really that big of a deal. I just try to be as precise as possible, and it’s one more step that I do to make sure my golf ball flies as straight as it possibly can fly because I’m not that great at hitting it that straight.”

The Pro V1x Left Dash is also quite a unique ball choice itself. The ball was originally created by Titleist as a Customized Performance Option in 2018 for its Tour staff. But due to the positive feedback, they eventually released the balls to the masses.

The ball combines some of the characteristics of both the Pro V1 and Pro V1x by offering a slightly firmer feel than the Pro V1x and a lower ball flight, more like the Pro V1, to help players fine tune their ball flights.
