Brown Patch

I am almost positive that I have brown patch in my personal lawn...we redid my yard last fall, looked amazing this spring (Defiance TTTFescue), then the very long hot and dry summer pretty much killed it (i just let nature take it's course)...for some reason i can't upload the picture from my iphone...i have a before picture that will upload but the after picture won't for some reason?...anyhow, it started out as multiple rings about 18" in diameter in the sunny part of the yard that eventually all joined together, now that part of the lawn is 90% "dead." I can't tell if the disease all joined together or if it's a combination of that and heat stress. my question is, is this grass dead if it is in fact brown patch or will it come back?

I will try to figure out how to upload this picture because it's pretty amazing how distinct the rings are...looks like a bunch of ufo's landed in my yard

Haphazardly guessing if something is wrong in th middle of a heat/drought episode is meaningless... wait and see what you have once you got cooler temps and moisture... if the turf is stressed, leave it alone is a good rule of thumb...
Now that I know that clay's texture(platelets) has nothing to do with water infiltration, percolation, or drainage
,,, I wonder what does...
