This allows the glove to hang freely and dry quickly between shots or while the golfer is putting. The ball marker is composed of plastic, and is used in the play of the sport to mark the place where the golf ball comes to rest.

The applicable subheading for the golf clip will be 3926.90.9880, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS), which provides for other articles of plastics, other. The rate of duty will be 5.3 percent ad valorem.
