 2014 Scottish Open Golf Champion, Justin Rose from England, has risen three places from 6th to 3rd in the latest Official World Golf Ranking (OWGR) after his win at Royal Aberdeen Golf Club.

If the English golfer can win this week’s 2014 Open Championship and Australian Adam Scott, who leads the OWGR, can finish no higher than 6th at Royal Liverpool, Rose could rise to OWGR #1.

The other ‘movers and shakers’ in the latest OWGR top-20 sees 2014 US Masters Champion Bubba Watson move down from 3rd to 4th spot; Matt Kuchar slips from 4th to 5th place; Jason Day drops down from 5th to 6th position; and Dustin Johnson slides from 14th to 16th spot

The latest OWGR top-20 reads as follows.
