Do you cut when the grass is wet. Is the middle roller pushing the grass
down then it not popping up again to
cut it? Some times a good mulching blade will suck the grass back up and
let you cut it in this case.
Just my thoughts!
John Deere doe snot have much of an overlap on their two bladed decks,
and all it takes is just a bit of wear on the blade tips to create
this problem. Also the end portion always seems to roound over and not
remain as sharp as the inner portion of the cutting end. Sop check
the very ends of the front cutting sectin of the blades and also
measure overall length and compare to a new blade and see how much it
may be worn. I assume your using full throttle, and your ground speed
is not too fast for conditions, as this can also cause this strip
between the blade. So try a lower gear, or take less of a cut and see
if it does it then, but check the blades first!

Don't turn. Honestly, two bladed mowers will skip when you turn one
direction but not when you turn the other direction. Experiment in an
unmowed area by doing loops in one direction and then the other
direction. You should find a direction that works best. Mow in that
direction (clockwise or counterclockwise).
The obvious other things are to make sure your blades are the right
length and sharp.
