272 NegligenceGolfer’s failure to follow rule of golf etiquette requiring a golfer to yell “fore” before hitting golf ball did not constitute an unreasonably increased risk which fellow golfer, who was struck by golfer’s misdirected shot, did not assume by playing golf, as such carelessness did not rise to the level of creating a dangerous condition over and above the usual dangers inherent in participating in the sport of golf.
