Parker has already emerged as a serious threat to the PSL's record season tally of 25 goals, achieved by Collins Mbesuma during the 2004/05 season.
Mbesuma attained his quarter century while still at Kaizer Chiefs, and Parker has set the early pace in the scorers' charts in the same gold and black jersey.
In fact, Parker's seven goals in five games is the best start to the season by any striker since the start of the modern day PSL in 1996.
Mbesuma scored four goals in the opening five games of the 2004/05 season, while Ishmael Maluleke and Chris Katongo had both scored five in five games when they went on to finish as top scorers in 2001/02 and 2006/07, respectively.
If Parker maintains his incredible scoring average – seven goals in every five games – he will rise to an unbelievable season tally of 42 goals, which would outmatch the scoring rates of even the best players in the world, Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo.
However, Parker does not even need to maintain that unlikely average, as all he needs is 19 more goals in the remaining 25 games to set a new PSL record of 26 League goals.
That appears reasonably attainable right now, and will see him take home the car that Absa has long dangled in front of strikers who score 26-plus goals.
Just under a goal a game will be enough to take Parker to a new scoring record in domestic football and bring him close to equalling the 31 career goals he had scored on club duty in the professional ranks prior to joining Chiefs last year.
So quick has Parker been out of the blocks that he has already hit half the 14-goal total that Jackie Ledwaba and James Chamanga needed to win the Golden Boot in the 2003/04 and 2007/08 seasons, respectively.
