Creeping Charlie is a possibility.

I assume you are speaking of the broadleaf weed in the pic.

It's Hydrocotyle umbellata; otherwise known as Marsh Pennywort or 'Dollarweed'.

Here is a link -> http://www.ppws.vt.edu/scott/weed_id/hydum.htm

There are so many things that will kill this weed......but since you are limited to a granular.....wait till ambient temps go below 85% and spread a bag of weed-n-feed (for your turf type) early in the morning when the dew is on the ground.

I am sure others will chime in on the treatment.....It's just a suggestion.
