0408_mj_phelps_GettyThey've each made a SOLID case to be considered the greatest athlete of all time ... and this weekend, Michael Jordan and Michael Phelps finally battled it out ... on the golf course.

Mike and Mike grabbed their clubs and hit the links in Vegas for the 12th Annual Michael Jordan Celebrity Invitational at Shadow Creek in North Las Vegas.

So, which Mike emerged victorious?

PHELPS ... by a stroke!!

The Olympic swimmer shot a 72 ... while Jordan shot a 73.

In the meantime, another celebrity power game was underway in L.A. -- Justin Timberlake vs. Kiefer Sutherland.

No word on who won that matchup. Sorry.

Flog is golf spelled backwards. Whoever wrote this story should be flogged repeatedly.

I don't think any of the guys who played minor league baseball with Jordan considered him a great athlete? basketball player yes, but Jordan was a joke playing baseball, he was awful, he batted a little over 200

Phelps is nowhere close to being in any discussion of greatest athlete. Are you kidding me?? It's swimming!! Nobody cares but once every 4 years

They should stick to their real sports. Although it would be funny to see Jordan swim and Phelps(try to)dunk.

One stroke or 1/100th of a second. I think Phelps is more lucky than talented.

FWIW, it was a handicap tournament. Because Jordan is about a 6 handicap, and Phelps is about a 60.

Greatest athlete of all time? puh-leez. Greatest BB player, greatest swimmer... yup, both have rock solid cases for that, but they aren't even top 10 when it comes to greatest athletes
