Kinda looks like sedge, can you take a picture further back? Is it taller, faster growing than the rest?

Would you mind shoving a pencil or ruler into the ground in your picture to help judge the actual size.
Is this Dalton Georgia?
Can we see some roots--are there any signs of rhizomes? Stolens?
Seed heads? Clumpy or spreading type grass?
In sun or shade?
Has it been surviving the winters?
Does it turn brown in winter?

Here are some pictures for you. Yes it’s in Dalton GA. It is in both the sun and shade. I think it’s spreading grass but not sure. Yes it has been surviving the winters. I don’t recall it turning brown in the winter. Thank you for all the help.

The more I look at that, the more it looks like Bermuda. But in Dalton, it would likely go dormant in the winter.

Still say Bentgrass is a good possibility if it does well in the shade and doesn't go dormant.

Yes it gets cold here. I’m not sure if it gets brown like Zoysia does. I’m sorry I don’t remember. If it is zoysia will it strangle out weeds and spread throughout the field? I know it will take time.
I lived in Chattanooga for most of my life. We had one property with Zoysia and it was decent in keeping the weeds at bay. But it wasn't an end-all. Zoysia spreads VERY slowly in that area from my experience. A lot depends on the soil content, water, and fertilizer.

I'm still not convinced that it is Zoysia though.

I am not 100 percent sure it's zoysia. Just what it looks like to me. If it has stolons it's zoysia or bent grass. If it doesn't it might be a fine bladed fescue.

I would look for stolons and if you find one pluck it. You can Google and look to compare it. Also does it have a seed head? That the easiest way to identity grass to me.

If you find out, report back

Ok thank you for the info. It doesn’t have seed head.
