Could I ask for clarification? Were/are the worms definitely underground like grubs? Were they in the thatch layer?

Are they insect larvae...or worms?

Can you find at least 6 legs like grubs? Of course, some larvae have "pro-legs" so the leg count may be more like 8 or 10.

I am still hoping for some photos.

Black turfgrass atenius is a possibility--they are small, but they do not form spots--big weak areas more likely.

Bluegrass billbug is not out of the question.

No not really. First impression ok maybe grub, never seen or have saw anything bigger than an inch at best. There grayish/brownish looking and realy just puzzling me. Been in this biz a long time and never encounter this type of worm looking thing.

Like everybody else, hard to tell without pictures.

You can try one of these:

worms

OK, Meet, (JVM)

Your pics were a bit too big. Upload failed. I cropped out a lot of excess grass and soil. Now they fit. Try setting your camera to medium size.
I managed to download a couple photos of the worms.
Check 'em out, everyone.

Still--the spots could be due to something else. You could have both dollarspot and "worms".

grubs... worms don't have legs.

Dylox 6.2 DG for the grubs & Cleary 3336 for the brown spot; both cheap and effective.

Exactly right. If we'd had this picture 3 days ago the "cure" could be underway. Signs were classic from the description but there was no use guessing without a photo IMO.
