That's Bermuda grass, I had the same problem with brown spots and dead areas and tried several things over a couple years and found that.by using a mulching mower and watering over night helped a lot

I live in Dinuba California also and it can get very hot here I was watering in morning or during the day and it was like a million little magnifying glasses that was just frying the grass by moving my watering to late evening about 4 till 11 at night ( I have a lot of grass ) it changed within a couple days it started to turn dark green and flourish

And recently we just got a new lawnmower I went the green electric rout and just turned out it was a mulching mower by mistake and now after a few months of use with it the grass is thick and filling in again so the combination of the two things have made all the difference in the world
