what the heck is this fungus so early in season?

last month

in eastern MA, after the usual early spring greenup - it has been VERY dry the past few weeks. I am a little shocked to find a good amount of what I assume is fungus - see pic. I know sometimes hard to tell from pic, but in short, many but not all blades are completely orange. I seldom have fungus and certainly have NEVER had it this early. Plus - I usually equate fungus with too much moisture, but this is not the case the past few weeks.


Any insight on what this is or what's going on?


I have avoided fungus control in the past and try to rely on abundance of organic matter to let lawn do it's thing and fight bad fungi itself - usually with pretty good results, but this is surprising to me!


Thanks!
