Soil Organic Matter(SOM) improves the soil's tilth and used to be called 'humus'... soybean meal should help to build that up...

Another strategy is to get some stuff already broken down into plant nutriment, in the form of compost...

Standing water or even water that stands too long, is in general, not a good thing for the grass... it does however support a foot hold for various fungal infections... getting the water quickly into a deep rootzone is best case scenario, then the surface can dry thoroughly between waterings...

It has been noted in other reputable organic sites that cornmeal helps with many fungal issues as well... whether it works on Red Thread in your lawn remains to be seen...
Now that I know that clay's texture(platelets) has nothing to do with water infiltration, percolation, or drainage
,,, I wonder what does...
