The Ayrshireman's scores got higher with every round - 65, 69, 70 and 72 - and his final total of eight-under-par 276 saw him finish six shots behind the amateur winner, Adria Arnaud (Spain) who scored 69, 70, 66 and 65 for 270. Arnaud is No 25 in the world amateur rankings.
McDonald earned 1,250 euros.
Perth's Daniel Young also deteriorated after starting with a 67. He added rounds  of 70, 74 and 71 for a joint 24th place finish on 282 and earned 557 euros.
Adria Arnaus ended the season in sparkling form coming from five shots behind 
to take the Grand Final title and create history as the first amateur to win the 
Alps Tour Order of Merit.

The top five players on the Alps Tour Order of Merit after the Grand Final all receive Challenge Tour cards 
Congratulations to Adria Arnaus of Spain, Ugo Coussaud and Antoine Rozner
