the back looks sweet. the front looks like patches of white straw growing, it does sit in the sun longer than the back does.
Any ideas?

I agree.. pork it and give it a blanket app. of weed control. I have never used anything especially for clover. A few good doses of 992 has always worked for us.

Good luck!

For me you need a good Fung (Eagle 20EW for example), and some good herb for clover (easy).

In MA this year, MANY lawns have the same issue (brown path, red thread etc).

when i get up in the morning and there is dew on the grass i notice there are a lot of what looks like cobb web looking things shaped in circle patterns as well if that helps with a diagnosis.

That is called Mycelium and it is the actual disease of either Red Thread or Dollar Spot that's spreading. If you've kept the Fertilizer applications up and it's not lacking in Nitrogen, it's time to go to Plan B. Plan B is a fungicide and you can either go with T-Storm, Eagle granular or Prophecy (all are available through Lesco/John Deere Landscapes). The average price is around $60.00 per bag and you must apply them at the CURATIVE rates. Be aware that you may be re-applying these products at 15 - 30 day intervals until the conditions that produce this disease/fungus dissipate. Remember, these products do not "get rid" of the disease. They simply lock it in place temporarily, preventing it from spreading and that's why you may need to continue to apply it at those intervals. You may want to also bump up your fertilizations to 4-week intervals because your newer lawn is chewing through the fertilizer at a faster clip than an older, mature lawn usually does.
