Much better video (perspective/resolution):

Sadly the same outcome. Someone forgot he wasn't flying a Pitts.

Yes he appears to have simply misjudged the altitude / wingspan and caught the wing tip. Look at the other videos .. no stall, just a controlled low altitude descending turn until the wing tip impacts the grass.
