Spots and how to treat organicly...

I have a customer with some spots in his yard. Great looking yard, I am thinking it may be brown patch.

The spots are up to 6" in diameter as the largest and then they get smaller from there. There are just a couple in the front yard and the back has much more just beyond the driveway and near the back patio. They don't have any green grass in the center, just bleached white dead grass...

They don't look like it would be something from a mower as they are not wide spread throughout the lawn and they don't seem to follow any pattern that I can think of. They are perfect circles for the most part. I will attempt to have some pictures taken and posted asap.

NPP to wipe it out and then the bermuda should fill back in?

OK, so the turf is dead, so... I take it that the damage is done and the turf will fill back in. From what I have read it doesn't look like it will spread any further from here on out. Anyone else have any history with this disease?

Dig into the spots with corner of a spade or puncture them several times with a pitch fork. Work into the root zone of the still growing grass by 6" or so. You're aerating and reducing compaction, while cutting a few roots, and rhizomes. That will stimulate new growth to help fill in the spot. Topdress with compost or water in with tea. Water or feed the spots as needed until they fill in. If bigger than a dinner plate you can dig small plugs (bulb digger size) of same turf from a less obvious spot and plant them in the spot.
