Is this fertilizer burn?

Is this by any chance fertilizer burn? Or some type of fungi infection? I'm worried I applied too much Nitrogen at the worst time. With a tropical storm, temperatures soared to 100, feeling like hotter. I would suspect if some type of fungi, it would have happen in the areas that were shaded. The areas that received the most sunlight are receiving these spots while the shaded areas are not? I've did lot's of research and keep finding brown grass as result to fert. burn, but can't find anything on white spots. The grass is thick and particular blades are infected to where it's not as noticeable as if the whole lawn were white. Any help would be appreciated!

Also forgot to mention in the area that is infected it seems to be healthy at the roots (lawn is taking root excellent now, when I pull the blades up grass is healthy at bottom, but has the white spots in the middle and at the tips of some of the blades.

I'm far from an expert. But now that you mention it, when I look closely at it in a light it almost appears as if a grayish or clear color rather than a white area.

I'm going to do some more research. Thanks for the suggestion I'll check it out!

So from my understanding it could be due to the fact of my newly established lawn and too much water applied?

And zoysia canbe affected as well - I would advise you to take some time and search out some more info on gray leaf spot and see what you can turn up. Good luck.
