Default Type of Fungis

Hey,
I am trying to figure out what type of fungis is occuring on this piece of property. The area is a small, about 1,900 sq ft. During early fall it starts with three good size circles, that start to brown out. It continues into late spring. I have tried heavy raking in the spring, fertilizing four-five times in a season,also appling aluminum sulfate because there tends to be a certain type of weed that grows there, re-seeding. This year I am going to try aerating, maybe throwing compost/topsoil mix. I believe it is a fungis problem but I am not positive. Any thoughts?

I had one lawn with about 4' circles on it. I mixed ordinary baking soda (1 box to 1 gallon warm water) with water and treated the area twice. It worked.

It could be a necrotic ring spot, which is caused by excessive fertilization.

Depending on the size, it could be the dollar spot disease, it appears on turf that is nutritional deficient & usually if you cut the lawn shorter than the norm.
