fert to grow better fescue

I'm in North Carolina and in a transition zone. OUr fescue looks great from seeding time in september til about may. then June, July, and August get here. We have 100 degree days and high humidity. The brown patch and heat pretty much kill it off.

I normally do a fertilizer application in Feb and Nov at 1 lb N per 1000. I apply starter in Sept at seeding. I'm going to try to push fungicides for prevention of brown patch.

I'm wondering if anyone has been able to "grow" better fescue in similar conditions.

If I fertilized more to help increase root growth, would that make any difference? I could do 2 spring and 2 fall fertilizer applications in addtion to the starter?

Any ideas? Its a dying turf here but some are still stubborn enough to want it.
