Notes:

I live in North Carolina and just bought a house with pasture land. This weed is gradually taking over the grass in the pasture. It first appears to have green leaves, and the leaves gradually get more yellow. It tends to grow in clusters throughout the pasture and grows very close to the ground.

    Maybe Virginia buttonweed (Diodia Virginia). According to sources, it appears to be infected with Diodia vein chlorosis virus which is causing it to have a yellowing look. If yours is Virginia buttonweed, it should have white flowers with 4 petals like the specimen in the included link below.
