Johnson breezed to victory in the Masters last year, scoring 20 under par, including two stunning 65-shot rounds.
He was five shots clear of joint second-placed Cameron Smith and Sungjae Im.
Ahead of this year’s competition, he said: “My game is in good shape.
“I’m starting to hit a lot of the same shots and getting a lot more comfortable over the golf ball. I feel like it’s in pretty good form.”
Elsewhere, Northern Ireland’s McIlroy is still aiming to win a coveted Grand Slam at Augusta.
He needs to win the Masters to complete the set of all four golf majors.
“I’m obviously focused on this week but it’s bigger than that,” said McIlroy.
“I’m trying to see the big picture. It’s a journey to try to get back to playing the game the way I know I can.”
