"I think it feels good to play at home," said Guan, who is from nearby Guangzhou. "It's not far away from my hometown and (I'm) used to the conditions here so I feel good."
"I think definitely I'm on the right progress. Last year, I have a great tournament (at the Masters) and have a lot of great experience, and starting with this year, we think we don't want to play too much tournaments at first," he said. "I think it's pretty good to not playing too much tournaments to focus on improving myself."
