Woods feeling better but unsure how knee will hold up

Tiger Woods heard a series of shutters from a spectator's camera and stopped his swing at the last minute, knees flexed, club shaft parallel to the ground, holding his pose until he could regain his balance.

"Oh, no," said the caddie for Mark O'Meara. "You're starting to swing like Charles Barkley."

Woods doubled over in laughter Tuesday on the eighth tee on the TPC Sawgrass, a light moment during his first time playing golf since disclosing minor knee and Achilles' injuries from the Masters.

Woods said the left knee -- which has gone through four surgeries -- and his left Achilles' are better.

"Good enough to play," he said.

How much better remains to be seen, and Woods still has to make it to the first tee Thursday morning for the start of the Players Championship, where he hasn't finished better than eighth since winning 10 years ago.

Woods said he tweaked his left knee from an awkward swing in the pine straw on the 17th hole of the Masters in the third round, and he played through the discomfort in the final round when he closed with a 67 after making a brief charge.
