Soaked lawn around sprinkler..Help

I turned on my sprinkler system on for the first time this year. Everything seemed to be fine. A couple of days later, I went to walk on my lawn and the center is soaked with water. There is one sprinkler head at the center and it seems that's where the problem and all water is coming from. I checked the pop-up head and it seems fine. I tried feeling the around the sprinkler head for cracks but could feel any and most of it is under ground. What could be wrong? Any help would be great! Thanks ?(

99% of the time when water is coming out of a sprinkler head like that there's something wrong with the valve that feeds that area. It's not the sprinkler head.

Could be a bad diaphragm. Could be a cracked seat. Could be debris in the diaphragm. etc...
