Ask the Rules Guy: Off the (ball) mark

Ask the Rules Guy
OFF THE (BALL) MARK
I was playing what I thought was a friendly game with a coworker last week. We were both on the green, and, to save time, I decided to do away with marking my ball and simply rotated it a bit so that my ball mark faced the hole. My "friend" called me out, saying that you have to mark your ball if you are going to move it. I replied that, not only had a not changed the location of the ball, I hadn't even lifted it off the ground (just rotated it). Still, he insisted that I had to mark my ball. Tell me I can tell him off.
