Justin Rose not only moved up to No. 3 in the world by winning the Scottish Open, he became a co-favorite to win the Open Championship.

Las Vegas-based Bovada has listed Rose and McIlroy as the joint favorites for Royal Liverpool at 14-to-1. They are followed by Adam Scott and Henrik Stenson -- Nos. 1 and 2 in the world -- at 16-to-1.

Tiger Woods is next at 18-to-1.

Woods is a three-time Open champion who won at Royal Liverpool in 2006. But he missed three months because of back surgery, and he missed the cut by four shots when he returned three weeks ago at Congressional.

U.S. Open champion Martin Kaymer and defending Open Championship champion Phil Mickelson were listed at 20-to-1. Masters champion Bubba Watson was 40-to-1.

Looking for a long shot? Look no further than Nick Faldo at 1,000-to-1.
