Hey La Grande. Monmouth, near Salem in the valley here.

Do we have the same customer? Here is what I showed in pics a month back and it looks identical. I am calling it Summer Patch, since we only really suffer from it and Red Thread as far as fungus' go:

hughmcjr it's nice to see some one in here from the west side .
I have been trying to get rid of this problem since spring, the fertilizer
I put down helped a little but it got worse last month so I applied a fungicide
will see what happen in a week or two I'm thinking about applying another round of fertilizer it's a custom blend 27-12-12 and it works very well here
in the Northeast part of the state.

Sounds word for word what I tried. SO it seems we can only stop the fungus from spreading further with fungicide, but what is dead it is too late. I am seriously thinking of incorporating fungus control into all of my maintenance accounts for additional costs. I realize it is so prevalent here it is on EVERY lawn here in the valley, that it really needs to be addressed at all my accounts, because as you know all the water and fertilizer won't really do much to help it.

When was the last time they sharpened their mower blades?
