|I don't think it's a fungus but it might be chinch bugs or grubs. Run your foot over the top of the green grass next to the brown area. Cinch bugs will jump up onto the top of your shoe. Or, dig out a portion of the green lawn next to the brown spots. If you see grubs hanging onto the roots, you can treat with Grubex. Hope this solves the problem.
