The highlight of the 2012/13 season for Maguire was winning the BetVictor Welsh Open - giving him the fifth ranking title of his career and first since 2008. He beat Stuart Bingham 9-8 in an exciting final to take the top prize in Newport.
"I'll feel great for the next couple of days and then it's on to the next tournament," said the Scot. "I want to push on and not have to wait another five years for the next one. There were times when I doubted whether I would ever do it again. It has hurt to see other players lift trophies, especially when I think I'm a better player than some of them.
"I lost a couple of finals last season which were painful. I should have beaten Ronnie in Germany, then I played Ebdon in China and I was fighting for my life but the last frame just got away from me. So to win this one is sweet."
Maguire also got to the semi-finals of the China Open and overall it was an impressive season and he finished it ranked No 5 in the world. However it did end in disappointing fashion with a shock 10-9 defeat against Dechawat Poomjaeng in the first round of the Betfair World Championship.
"I was afraid to look in the end. Crazy things were happening. I don't think he's the full shilling," Maguire said of his maverick opponent from Thailand. "I just had to switch off. I've never seen him before but there's definitely something missing."
In 2012, Maguire reached the final of the German Masters and China Open, but was beaten by Ronnie O'Sullivan and Peter Ebdon. He also got to the semi-finals of the World Championship before losing to Ali Carter.
During the 2007/08 season, Maguire was the only player other than Ronnie O'Sullivan to win two ranking titles. At the Northern Ireland Trophy in Belfast he beat Fergal O'Brien 9-5 to win his first ranking title in three years.
Maguire went on to win the China Open in Beijing, edging out Ryan Day 6-5 in the semi-finals having made the second official 147 break of his career earlier in the match. The final was a thrilling affair as he beat Shaun Murphy 10-9.
Maguire made his first breakthrough in March 2004 when he hammered Jimmy White 9-3 in the final of the European Open in Malta to win his maiden major title.
Eight months later he captured a more prestigious crown with victory in the UK Championship, beating David Gray 10-1 in the final.
Former world amateur champion Maguire his first 147 maximum during the pre-TV rounds of the 2000 Scottish Open.
Away from snooker, Maguire enjoys playing badminton and going to the gym. He and wife Sharon three children. A fan of animals, he once kept baby sharks in a tank in his bedroom and now keeps bulldogs.
