I think the common answers are that it needs N or it needs Fe or it needs both. You can either give it or the other to see if it gets better, or you can give it both.

If you have high pH, the Fe might not be very available in the soil, in which case a foliar application would be best but I don't know if you have that option available to you or not.
I was walking by my yard and wondered if I missed a spot while applying AMS? Next time I will go the opposite way...

P looks towards the high side. All you need is nitrogen.

Wonder why my reply did not go through..

That was my understanding... Matt with Grass Factor answered my email question on his TurfsUpRadio show... I was kinda elated that he did...

He explained it very well...

Or should I just apply some Starter fert going into the winter...
If you do go with a starter fert, just be sure to look at the K content and find the lowest one available. Scotts has a 24-25-4 and Lesco has a 18-24-12, in which case go with the Scott's. Late season potassium can increase chances of snow mold, and the more potassium the greater the incidence. I have read that the threat is typically worse in areas that have continual snow cover for 30+ days, which we (seeing that you are basically parallel with me in Indy) rarely have happen.
