In the 1994 US Open, McGuire appeared in the main draw as a wildcard and lost in the opening round to 12th seed Wayne Ferreira.[3] He also competed in the men's doubles with Jeff Tarango.[3] They defeated Mike Bauer and Alexander Mronz in the first round, before being eliminated in the second round by Rikard Bergh and Mark Keil.[3]

McGuire was a semi-finalist at the 1994 AT&T Challenge in Atlanta, with wins over Bryan Shelton, Marcelo Filippini and Lars Jonsson.[3] In the 1996 Legg Mason Tennis Classic he defeated then world number 32 Carlos Costa.[3]

He competed in back to back Wimbledon Championships in 1997 and 1998, but was unable to progress past the first round in either, losing to Jens Knippschild and Michael Tebbutt respectively.[3]
