Fertiliser masacre! Please help

Hello, I really need help. a week ago I put down some grass fertiliser... the handle in my spreader was broken so I reckon the thing opened up fully in some points. Anyway I arrived at my yard today to witness a real shock:
Please help me!

Im thinking of getting more fertiliser, fixing my spreader and laying out the stuff onto places where it didnt get laid. is it any good ??

Any other solution ?

if you are going to put fertilizer down again, use an organic/natural fertilizer like Milorganite, Espoma, and Neptune's Harvest. These products do not burn.

You can also fertilize at say half the rate next time.

Definitely get a rotary...i know a few people using a drop spreader for 12000sqft! Insane...takes 1-2 hours instead of 15 minutes.

As suggested above wait a week or so and apply fertilizer to the entire lawn again, my reco is to do it at half the rate this time and then wait until the next fertilization to do a full one again
