The 54-year-old Carter shot a 63. He birdied nine of the first 13 holes, making six straight on Nos. 8-13. A former Arizona State player, he won the 2000 PGA Tour event at Tucson National for his lone title.
    
The 52-year-old Short tied the tour record for eagles in a round with three in his 65.
