Well that didn't take long. Two weeks after Tiger Woods opened as a 10/1 favorite to win the Open Championship at Royal Lytham and St Annes, his odds were slashed in half following his third win of the season at AT&T National.

Now the 5/1 favorite at the Las Vegas Hotel and Casino Sportsbook (formerly the Las Vegas Hilton), he's distanced himself from a pack of big names that includes Rory McIlroy and Lee Westwood (12/1), Luke Donald (15/1) and Padraig Harrington (20/1).

After that, there's a huge bottleneck with Phil Mickelson, Justin Rose Sergio Garcia, Martin Kaymer, Rickie Fowler, Jason Dufner and Graeme McDowell all coming in at 30/1.

By the way, if you're really feeling lucky, David Duval is at 500/1. I know guy's only made two cuts in 12 events this season, but he hoisted the Claret Jug that last time the Open Championship was played at Royal Lytham and St Annes back in 2001. With those odds, he has to be worth a small wager, right?

Here's a rundown of Las Vegas Hotel and Casino's top 10 to win the British Open (the rest of the odds come after the jump):

TIGER WOODS 5/1
RORY McILROY 12/1
LEE WESTWOOD 12/1
LUKE DONALD 15/1
