    Looks like anthracnose. Did they look the same last year?

    Agreed , could be many things but you won't help them now. You can cut them to the ground and see if they come back good or remove aand replace.
    Looks bacterial in nature.

    Did anyone spray some sort of weed killer in the area? May be a drift or soemthing. If it was that thought it would have had to have been pretty close to the plant itself.? Just a thought... and what about a combination with mybe some frost?

    DON'T WATER EVERY DAY! That can lead to root rots. Make sure that you give the plant some time to dry out. How would you like a hose stuck in your face all the time. Besides hosta can take it on the dryer side.
