Any product that contains Daconil will be effective if used according to the directions given. If you would prefer a more natural solution, an application of liquid sulfur would also work. You can often prevent fungus problems in St Augustine by careful fertilization and watering.

There is a great fungicide that is pretty safe for all grass types called "Merit". It is expensive; $60 for a small bag. However, if you put it down when the weather is warm and dry (not burning hot mid day) and water it in, you should get good control.
