Deadbolt screws too far apart

I bought a Wyze Lock and had trouble installing it. The plate allowed for 2 screws a maximum distance of 1 1/2 inches apart.
However, my deadbolt had 2 inches of space between the screws.
The only idea I had was to drill a hole, but obviously the company advised against that.
Has anyone else had a similar problem and what did you do to fix it?
