Most likely is "rust" - a fungus .... usually not a problem if only in a small area. Usually will show more in Rye lawns and tend to thin them out. Make sure that the nitrogen levels are high enough and if it appears to be spreading, you can use Daconil as per label. Usually need 2-3 apps at 5 day intervals. Make sure you are collecting the grass until you are sure it is gone.
