That's kind of unfair to call Al Parker a bust. He had arguably the greatest junior career ever and had the highest of expectations, but his career was cut short by a severe back injury. He was told he'd never play again, but fought through injuries for a few years until his body just couldn't take anymore. Don't feel sorry for him though because he went on to a career in investment banking and has probably made a lot more money than most people do on the pro tour.
