As for tournaments? The only two tournaments I've played in permitted carts - both pull and motor. If you used a cart in one of those tournaments, it wasn't cheating - they were permitted. If you played in a tournament that expressly forbid them, then they would be cheating again, in that situation only
Finally, the permissibility of professionals using carts depends on the tour. On the Umbrella tours, the professionals have caddies, so the rule isn't really relevant. I seem to recall that the Champions Tour uses motorized carts in its non-majors. Maybe Tom Kite went from being #1 on the money list to being a regular golf cheater. It seems sad that Ben Crenshaw and Tom Watson joined him in cheating. I wonder why they still get paid if they're cheating?
Unless motor carts aren't cheating while pull carts are, for some reason.
So, is your argument that pull carts are cheating when a tournament's rules forbid them? Then yes, they are. It's also cheating to carry six clubs in a five-club tournament. Should I pare my bag down to five clubs for everyday play accordingly?
