since SharePoint designer 2010 updates in to the content database.. there is no direct source control mechanism.

If I want to keep modification in SharePoint Designer 2010 in to TFS... what is the mechanism I should follow.

What is best practice in this case?

Need sincere answer.

For what reason do you need content in the site stored in TFS? SharePoint's core functionality may already provide what you need in terms of versioning, etc. – James Love Apr 21 '13 at 17:00

There is no story for source control in SPD, period. Best practice is to develop your solutions in a Visual Studio solution package. You can use SPD in a dev site to prototype your solutions, and later move them into Visual Studio, where you'll have full integration with source control, among numerous other benefits.
