Wondering if anyone else has had this happen?

I'm a 21 handicapper and my adjusted gross for the 14 holes played was 19 over par. If I had scored net par on the four holes not played my score differential would have been 23.2, assuming no PCC adjustment. However the score differential calculated and now counting against my handicap is 18.4. This seems to assume I played the missing holes in close to gross par.

The latest WHS updates state regarding this "the calculations used to calculate

an expected score, includes ratings of standard difficulty, and are not shared

by the USGA", but whatever calculation has gone on seems unduly harsh. Initially I assumed the 18.4 was a score differential just for the 14 holes played, but it's definitely counting as an 18 hole score and being used in the average calculation for my handicap.

Am I missing something? Thanks!
