Yellow patches can indicate a fungal disease or might be a sign of grub feeding or chinch bugs. Dig out some of the patch and look at the roots. If you find grubs hanging on to the roots, or if there are no roots at all, you'll want to treat for grubs. If the roots look waterlogged or are mushy, the area doesn't drain well enough to suit the grass. If the roots look okay, check the grass blades for spots. Spots usually indicate a disease. If none of the above seems to fit what you're seeing, you may need to feed your lawn or use an iron supplement to help it green up. Good luck with your lawn.
