Help ID'ing this weed

I live near Charleston, South Carolina and have a centipede lawn. I have these popping up all over the yard. They are very easy to pull up because they are very shallow rooted. This one in the picture was not there a few days ago. It seems they go from nothing you can see to about 3 or 4 inches tall in a few days. Most are scattered far apart but I am get some on the side of my house that are starting to clump together. I have searched photos from just about everywhere trying to figure out what it is with no luck. Thanks in advance, Jesse

If you buy a bottle of sedge hammer, mix a gallon per instructions, it will kill this sedge you have.
