Hello,
First of all, make sure that you have brown patch. This is a good description of it. http://plantdiseasehandbook.tamu.edu/landscaping/lawn-turf/sorted-by-names-of-diseases/brown-patch/

This publication also contains a good description and has some control options. https://aggieturf.tamu.edu/wp-content/uploads/E-633-Large-patch.pdf

You'll notice that it is the same disease referred to as brown patch or large patch, a fungus called Rhizoctonia solani.

Let me know if I can assist you further.
