Can someone help me identify what kind of disease this butternut squash has please?
Thank you very much!

Extra information - daily watered, summer time here (Australia with max temperature about 33 deg C - 90 deg F? during this event), disease appears and spreads within 1 week, fruits appear to be fine, fertilized with liquid fertilizer every 14 days.

My first guess would be Downy Mildew (Pseudoperonospora cubensis). I have not encountered Gummy Stem Blight(Didymella bryoniae) but its description could fit your situation.
