Pros use push carts. Stewart Cink was seen using a trolley playing East Lothian after the BO.

I always carry.
I've tried to pull the clubs on a cart before, but I dunno it just didn't feel right. I probably should buy a stand though. I have an old Hippo bag from the mid 90s and I often have to lay it down if its windy or on bumpy terrain.
I'd say its about 50-50 on my course with carrying or pushing a cart.
Ha ha. I would consider it if I could enjoy a beer driniking round. Sounds fun! Not sure if I wil be able to do that in France or the UK though.
I really don't walk anymore because of a foot issue that will not go away but I really do prefer to walk playing golf. When I first started playing golf, could not afford the extra expense of a riding cart so I used a pull cart. After a few years, I gave up the pull cart and began carrying my clubs. So, for years I carried my clubs when I did not rent a riding cart. A few years back, some of my buddies wanted to start walking (all of us own EZGO carts) and they got the new push (not pull) carts. Even at 60+ years old, I still carried my clubs. I just don't like dealing with a push or pull cart. Sure wish I could get the foot problem solved so I could walk some afternoons.
I've used a push cart (Clicgear) for years, but on a whim went back to carrying last week. Really enjoying it and, at the moment, also playing better!
I'd forgotten the extra freedom of movement you have on the course with your clubs on your back.
Using one of these. Seems like a nice bag so far.
My home club is quite hilly on the front nine and relatively flat on the back nine. Downhill for holes 1 thru 3, back up on holes 4 and 5, then all the way down for hole 6, relative flat hole 7 and back up on holes 8 and 9.
Contrary to what most are saying I find it easier to carry my bag especially on the hilly front nine.
When I use one of the club's 3 wheeled push carts I am winded going up the 4th and 5th holes.
Also we have a very strict policy of no push carts going between the bunkers and the green. This means considerably less walking by carrying the bag.
A few things got me back to carrying. First, I didn't 't feel a difference, fatigue wise, in carrying vs pushing. Also, I like the versatility of carrying. If I need to hop a creek, I can do that carrying, not with a cart. Also, if I finish out a hole, I can carry my bag on a direct line across the green to the next tee box.
I could see pushing when I get older, but I prefer to carry now.
