Pin Oak tree with brown spots / leaves turning brown early

I bought a pin oak tree from Lowes a few years back and planted it myself, in Southwest Ohio. Tree gets full sun all day, watered frequently, and is on a slight hill.

Last year I noticed about July the leaves getting brown spots, then some of the leaves turned brown, and by late August, all the leaves were brown and most fell off. (And usually it (and other pin oaks) kept its brown leaves all winter and would drop them after winter).

This year it's mid June already and some leaves have brown spots.

Any suggestions on what is going on?
