The LPGA Tour is going to a points race this year, offering $1 million to the winner of the new "Race to the CME Globe."

This points system won't be hard to figure out.

Instead of the PGA Tour's model of four tournaments with gradually reduced fields leading to the Tour Championship, the women will earn points for 31 events going into the CME Group Tour Championship. The points will be reset giving weight to whoever had the best year. The winner will receive a $1 million bonus.

LPGA commissioner Mike Whan calls the race the "bow on the present" of the LPGA Tour's strongest schedule in years.

Only the top nine from the 72-player field at the Tour Championship would have a mathematical chance to win the $1 bonus.
