Q.Leaf Problems On A Chinkapin Oak

Hi There….Every leaf on my 10 year old Chinkapin Oak has many brown spots and the leaves are brown around the edges. We have had more rain than usual this year and our terrible Winter Storm in February. Could this be a water problem or some sort of tiny beetle??? Thanks so much for any help!!!
