Birth of a Photon

I heard or read somewhere that a Photon, created at our Suns' core, can take up to 50 years to reach the Suns surface; taking only 8 or so minutes to get to us after that. I can't find a reference for it so hoping someone would know.

50 years, that's a long time to play dodgem cars.

Anyone know if this is correct?
