I'm in South Florida. There's a rapidly-growing weed that spreads by deep underground runners that produce multiple offshoots. What is it? how do I get rid of it?

I'm afraid I'm at a loss to identify your weed, or to suggest a control because I don't know what type of turfgrass you are growing. Some weed killers cannot be used on St. Augustine and some cannot be used on bermuda or zoysia grass. So, the next best thing is to direct you to a publication from the University of Florida. It describes the most common weeds and lists the appropriate ways to control them. I hope you find it helpful:
